Kerry’s art professor-Grandmother was an instructive and inspiring influence and credited with fostering an early and consistent desire to create. Kerry has fine arts training through college art and design courses, but is a mostly self-taught artist. She worked with acrylics from a young age and still does, but more recently has begun using oil colors in most work, finding their texture and blendability deeply satisfying. Much of her work exudes a clearly feminine feel and is sometimes floral. By working in abstract forms she tells the story of tenderness in nature, sometimes also exploring the contrast of its severity.
Non-representational art is her opportunity to express something that words will not entirely say. This allows for a more intuitive process, or more simply, a less analytical evolution of a piece of work. Kerry’s inspiration comes from the colors and textures of life, particularly current trends. The abstract expressionists of the 20th century as well as several current artists’ work continue to inform her method.
