Born in Lancashire, England, Terence (Terry) Mulligan had an interest in art from his early years, but a career in professional rugby kept him from pursuing it.
In 1964, Mulligan immigrated to the U.S., and was drafted into the Army, shortly after his arrival, further delaying his pursuit of art.
After a successful career in management with a Fortune 500 company, Mulligan moved to Georgia in 1990, where an old roller mill , typical of those found in the South, reignited his passion for art.
A self-taught artist, he captured the roller mill in oils and moved on to other historical scenes. His favorite subjects tend to be old buildings of Europe, the waterways of Venice, the riverboats of the South, and the old tall ships.
Mulligan was commissioned by a publisher to paint the covers for his wife’s novels. His usual medium is oil on canvas.
He currently lives in Sugar Hill, GA with his wife, Ane. When not painting, he is actively involved in the Sugar Hill Arts Council and Players Guild@Sugar Hill as an actor and board member. He’s active in their local church and sings with two different choral groups: Silvertones, a 150-member choir of senior citizens and Joyful Sound, an 8-member ensemble.
“Whatever inspirations, dreams or successes I have experienced in my life, I owe first and foremost to my Creator, good parents and a loving wife.”
