Terence Coventry’s natural talent was recognised from an early age and he gained early admittance to Stourbridge School of Art where he was taught by Keith Leonard, who had been one of Barbara Hepworth’s studio assistants. He went on to study at the Royal College of Art but after his request to change from the painting to sculpture course was refused, Coventry left London to establish a career as a farmer on the South Cornish coast.
After 25 years farming in Cornwall, Terece Coventry returned to his first love, sculpture. He had his first solo exhibition at the age of 71.
Coventry's sculptures are held in many public and private collections around the globe. He is represented by Pangolin.
