This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Working from his South Dakota studio near Watertown on Lake Kampeska, Terry Redlin creates paintings of life the way he thinks it ought to be. He openly admits his paintings are sentimental and that he is a romantic, a tone much out-of-step with avant-garde movements. Reproductions of his work are widespread through Hadley House in Bloomington, Minnesota.

He spent his childhood in the Lake Kampeska region, loving the wildlife that surrounded him. Soon he was drawing and sketching familiar subjects. As a teenager, he lost a leg in a motorcycle accident, and deciding not to give into self pity, he became serious about art. At age 19 and married to wife Helene, he accepted a scholarship from his home state to a school in South Dakota and then studied art in Minnesota including at Brown & Bigelow in Saint Paul. To earn money, he did freelance illustration.

In 1967, he settled his family in the Twin Cities, and he worked for Webb Publishing Co, which gave him skills in four-color reproduction. On the side he did wildlife painting and discovered that this pursuit was earning him much more money than the printing business. In the 1980s, he turned to sentimental Americana painting, with his first piece being "Coming Home," a rural Christmas snow-scene.

In 1996, he returned to his boyhood home in South Dakota and was by then a wealthy man. To repay the state for his original scholarship, he funded a 10 million dollar, 52,000 square foot Redlin Art Center, which opened in 1997. It was designed by his business manager, architect-son, Charles, and houses 105 of his paintings. It is located at the junction of Interstate 29 and U.S. Highway 212 and has free admission, a 30-acre nature park, and a huge movie theater. The structure, which attracts over 400,000 people a year, has been a boom for the economy of Watertown.

Asserting that he has been the recipient of much help and wanting to give back, he actively supports Ducks Unlimited, dedicated to wildlife preservation, and the Courage Center in the Twin Cities that helps to rehabilitate people injured in accidents.
