Terri Hallman was born in Waukesha, Wisconsin. She had a childhood fascination with the shape of things, reproducing them and then recreating their surfaces. Drawing was a continuous part of her daily routine. She is a graduate of the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, with a specialty in Design.

Hallman begins her works with stick figure drawings on paper. She then rubs dry pigment (by hand) into the paper. Between layers, she masks off sections with tape and scrapes away others. She describes the process of removing tape and unmasking areas as being similar to “revealing and discovering the nature of the subject.” The creative pace is intense; the result is supersaturated hues and curiously crude textures. In her own words: “The layers expose the passage of time…how some things are covered up and how others are revealed.”
