About The Artist
‘When people ask what is my painting style I find it very hard to answer. I try not to put limitations on what I do…I paint everything from portraits, seascapes, flowers, buildings, landscapes, abstracts. I generally paint with acrylic as it is incredibly versatile and gives a variety of different effects – I can build up layers of paint for a textured effect which works well on abstracts, or the acrylic can be watered down and used like water-colour paint for a softer image…
For me, painting is my ultimate passion; if I couldn’t pick up my brushes and paint, I would go mad!
My main aim is to create beautiful paintings from which people can get never-ending enjoyment. You can never ‘use up’ a painting; it can last forever if you want it to. I get a real buzz from knowing that I can create something especially for someone. Most of my work is commissioned and I am reaching an increasing number of people through exhibitions and through the Internet.’
Kerry can be commissioned to create beautiful portrait paintings from photographs – She is also a professional photographer, so no need to worry if you don’t have a suitable photo as she can take some shots too.
Kerry believes a portrait painting should be informal in order to reflect the characteristics of the subject – her paintings based on photographic reference record relaxed, spontaneous moments that could never be posed – especially with children!
