For a time in my early art developing years in Indy, I had the great fortune to meet Terry Steadham and George Sears: two of the kindest souls I've ever met. We three ran together, drew together, laughed together, complained and at times cried together. I marveled at George's cartoons but Terry was my art mentor. I used to always ask Terry why he put squiggles in his illustrations or paintings and he would always say "because they belong there". It took me a long time to understand what he meant. Now when asked the same question about my art...well you know how I answer.

Among many things, Terry taught me to have a reverence for my artwork. Anyone who saw Terry handling his art knows what I'm talking about. To Terry, his art was not just something on a scrap of paper, illustration board or canvas but something precious on a scrap of paper, illustration board or canvas. Like him, his art was precious and it's no wonder he got called up to the Bigs - New York, early on. They saw in him what we all saw.

A lot of what Terry taught me about valuing my art, I now pass on to my students here in Canada and I thank him for that. I will only miss seeing him but I will not miss Terry because he is a big part of me.

With love and respect,

I knew Terry in NYC in the 80's. We trained together for the NY Marathon for 4 or 5 years. We both resided on the Bowery and made the most of the life there. A tedious man, he brought out the intricacies of doing things correctly. A trait of his I will embrace infinitely.
good work my friend.

Terry was the kindest, sweetest guy around in high school...always a gentleman. I still have some works he gave me then. He will be missed.

Terry was the greatest friend and companion anyone could have, and we shared many adventures. He took risks in his life in order to fulfill his dreams. To be successful to him was to be happy living simply, and at peace, whether viewing the stars and planets with one of his telescopes or creating a work of art. Terry taught young artists by example how to live an artist's life. He was the kindest, most generous person I have ever known.
