Teri Payton is an artist. Both musical and visual. A songwriter, painter, woodworker, and dog walker.  She resides in St Johns, a corner-pocket-of-a-neighborhood in northern-most Portland, Oregon. Taking time off from touring after 10 years of performing, she is currently focusing on the writing aspect of her music and developing her visual arts skills. Taking commissions is a healthy part of that development. Please feel free to contact her with requests.
