Print by Terance James Bond.Terance James Bond was born in Suffolk, Great Britain, in 1946. In his youth on his parents' farm, nature — in the form of the English countryside — made a lasting impression on him.
Educated in the arts from an early age, Bond first utilized his artistic talents as a design engineer while he pursued his interest in wildlife in his leisure time. His drawing ability and love of natural history finally led him to paint wildlife.
All of the paintings in Bond's first one-man show in 1970 sold on the preview evening; his subsequent exhibitions have been similarly successful. In 1977, Bond had the privilege to present one of his paintings to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in commemoration of Jubilee Year. His book, BIRDS — The Paintings of Terance James Bond, which illustrates his artwork from the mid-1980s, has just been published. In 1988, ten Bond paintings were commissioned by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds for their Centenary Anniversary Wedgwood Plate Collection, which won the Gold Award at the 1988 Ceramic Trade Fair in Amsterdam.
Bond's watercolor paintings are executed in a highly detailed, traditional style; this attention to detail is now a recognized feature of his paintings. A long-time associate of several conservation groups, Bond represents wildlife in a strictly accurate fashion.
