Dale TerBush was born in Elmhurst a suburb of Chicago. Soon thereafter his family moved to Southern California’s San Fernando Valley. As a young child he began what was to be his life calling-he began to paint. Such Intuitiveness and burgeoning creativity early on provided him with a desire to excel and thus pursue his natural talents.

TerBush captures a landscape that comes from within his own imagination. It flows from his own sense of spirit and self. TerBush, a poet with paint, evokes the emotional response as in romantic prose. Each TerBush landscape is a unique dream world. Initially familiar, a closer look reveals a world of its own. The painting becomes an experience rather than merely a sensation. The romantic visions are often compared to the Hudson River School – the 19th Century body of artists who glorified nature, creating Eden-like scenes of lakes, rivers, mountains and other pastoral subjects. In his paintings an intensity is found in the use of color and light. TerBush is a Master at illumination and the use of exciting, yet unexpected, color. Some have even compared his use of color to the 20th Century Master Maxfield Parrish.

Collectors of his paintings range from Celestine Prophecy author James Redfield, Developer Donald Trump, Country Western singer Reba McIntire, Actor-Singer Terrence Howard, Actress Eva Longoria and International Heads of State – to name a few. Terbush has broken gallery records world wide and has had four spectacular sell out shows in Japan. His International acclaim rapidly continues to grow. Today, TerBush enjoys his life in downtown San Diego, California. With his home overlooking the water, he continues to find new inspiration in each and every sunset. TerBush reveals beauty and emotion in his ethereal landscapes; each painting a poetic symbol of a powerful experience and a dream not to be forgotten. TerBush paints the Heavens but reveals the soul.
