Since 1990 Terry has participated in almost 100 exhibitions, many of them solo, in Australia, Japan, France, Austria, USA and Germany. His work is found in collections in Holland, Germany, Spain, France, Britain, Canada, USA, Taiwan and Japan. He has curated several exhibitions in Australia and the USA, and often gives presentations at wood art and turning-related conferences around the world.

"My woodwork grew out of a lifelong love of trees, something that must have begun with my childhood experiences playing in the Australian bush.  The trees were always there and their scent, shade and quiet presence can still transport me to the past. I believe we must not destroy pristine forests, so I no longer use rare timbers. Trees do die and can be replaced, so we can make wonderful things from wood as long as we take care not to leave the environment poorer. While I love to make simple shapes based on classical work, I also like to have fun and I enjoy breaking rules. It's very satisfying to challenge conventional rules."
