Terra Lee Madden is a prolific visual and culinary artist in the Greater Pittsburgh region, with a bounty of international, national, and local experience in these and other arts-related fields. She started out in the field of electrical engineering studies, but always held space for art in her day. She came up through the food and beverage industry, learning how to best serve the community. She resumed her education to become a complex studio artist and teacher.
She has traveled and studied in South Korea and Poland, holding exhibitions in both countries. She has recently worked with Boys & Girls Clubs of America on a National Virtual Club, making on-demand and live video classes. She has also toured the United States teaching in camps and exhibiting her work.
In 2018, she started her own business, Terra By Terra LLC, which is her life’s goal and dream. She did have to take a two-year break due to the pandemic but happily resumed the pursuit of happiness in 2022.
Terra is an educator and entrepreneur as well. She chooses to help young people and adults in a myriad of ways; She teaches the teachers, feeds everyone, and welcomes everyone into her circle no matter where she is or what project she is working on at the moment. She creates packages of services that she designs for each individual or group.
Terra’s resounding goal is to make this world a better place than she found it.
