e. terumi woods
Terumi Woods hesitates to call herself an artist. She’d rather say she’s a compulsive creator — fascinated by architecture, urban spaces, and nature, particularly when they intersect with each other.
Through real-world training in an architecture office and the variety of classes she took at City College of San Francisco, she realized there is a real tension between keeping the artistic inspiration alive and the tedium of the details. Her drawings try to represent that tension. Terumi is starting to really play with watercolor, a medium she finds both intriguing and terrifying … and she’s in love.
