Born in 1956 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Terry Ananny resides in Ottawa, Ontario. Terry Ananny’s bright and colourful acrylic paintings often feature children at play and Quebec winter landscapes which seek to capture the spirit of Canadian life. Her early years spent in summers on Lake Muskoka and travelling to Quebec enriched the artist with lasting impressions of the vast Canadian landscape and diverse Canadian culture. Her paintings are held in many Canadian and international corporate collections. Her work has been collected by Canadian Prime Ministers, Governor Generals and the Government of Canada. Recently large reproductions of her work were purchased by the BC Children's Hospital Foundation for the new Teck Acute Care Centre which opened in 2017. Her work was also purchased by the Lucile Packard Stanton Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, California. In 1999 her work was commissioned by the Canadian Government for a coin design. Her work was presented at the New York Art Expo in 2003. Her paintings have been reproduced on UNICEF Christmas cards and also on Hallmark, Save the Children, Make-a-Wish and Island Art cards. Many fine art galleries in Canada and the United States represent her work.
