Terence Coventry was born in the Midlands. He studied at Stourbridge School of Art and London's Royal College of Art before carrying out two years' national service in the RAF. Together with his wife, who grew up in a farming family, he moved to Coverack on the Lizard in the 1960s, where they set up as pig farmers. He began sculpting in the 1980s but continued to farm until 2000. Three years later, at the age of 65, he had the opportunity to devote more time to the creative process. His sculptures are based on farm animals and the birds of the Cornish landscape. He has created a sculpture park of around 30 pieces which can be seen on the South West Coast Path above Coverack. His works have been exhibited and collected both in the UK and abroad.
