Kerry’s artistic practice opened up when she began encouraging her six-year-old son who loved to draw. Kerry says that while watching a YouTube video on drawing faces “something just clicked”. She couldn’t stop researching and learning. Her passion for art had begun and she became technically skilled in graphite pencil drawing.
Three years later Kerry was forced to stop working due to ill health. Kerry took the opportunity to teach herself how to paint, having always had a love of colour. Kerry began painting animals.
Kerry recently joined the Access Arts Brisbane Outsider Artists.
Kerry has exhibited with Access Arts as part of Earth Footprint (2021) and Dancing Colours (2022) at St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital, Visitors (2021) at Brisbane Powerhouse and Looking Back, Looking Forward at KPMG (2022).
