Terry Horne was born on January 18th, 1982 in Chilliwack, located near Vancouver, British Columbia. He is a member of the Coast Salish Nation and his predominant crest figure is the Sisiutl- Double Headed Sea Serpent. Being from a long line of family carvers and artisans he has always been immersed in his artistic heritage.
His father, master carver Francis Horne Sr. and brother Francis Horne Jr. have acted as his primary mentors, instilling cultural heritage, traditions and artistic understanding. At the tender age of 16 years old, Terry began introducing his work publicly and has since emerged to exhibit in various galleries and included within the creative process of monumental works. In October 2005, Terry carved alongside his well known uncle Doug LaFortune creating a 30ft Totem Pole for the Centennial Anniversary of Butchard Gardens. This monumental pole brings back the Native element, using the spiritual cedar tree to reinstate First Nation cultural heritage and tradition.
Although his preferred mediums currently remain within the Cedar, Alder and Bass variety of wood, his innate artistic talents are exhibited within his unique works.
