Born in a North Wales coastal town, Kerry’s talent was fuelled by a love of beautiful old picture books (Rackham, Dulac and Beardsley were favourites), which developed into a degree in illustration in 1996.
Following university she worked in South America before returning to the U.K. to work as a designer and illustrator for an exclusive company, specializing in sculptured clay murals for private residences in the middle East, Untied Arab Emurates and the USA.
Kerry now works independently form her studio at home in North Wales, using all of these influences and her artistic flexibility to create pieces of art n a wide variety of subjects.
Her acrylic paintings are uniquely formed upon board or canvas first, using texture and gessos. The colour is then built up upon satellite photographs of Earth which created the ‘Volcanic’ Collection in 2005/2006. This has since diversified to include contemporary landscapes and figure-work, all carrying her unique style.
Kerry’s work has become increasingly sought after by collectors, and in 2007 she was a finalist in the ‘Best Up-and-Coming Published Artist’ category in the Fine Art Trade Guild Awards, as voted by sales in UK Galleries.
