Terri-Lynn Papagiannis (TL PAPA) is an artist and art educator, born and raised on Vancouver Island. At a young age she developed a passion for art and was inspired by the natural beauty in her hometown of Campbell River and its surrounding areas.
After graduating with a BFA from The University of Victoria, she began teaching children and adults at various art studios around the city of Victoria while developing her artistic style by utilizing her favourite medium: acrylic gouache.
Since 2017, TL has established herself in the city of Heidelberg, Germany, teaching art classes to locals and expats of all ages. Even though she is living thousands of miles from the Pacific Ocean and Sitka spruces, influences from the west coast of Canada are still reflected in her work.
When she is not busy painting or teaching, TL enjoys travelling around Europe with her family, making homemade pasta and running beside the Neckar River.
