Kerri Kerley works from her beautiful inspiring beachside studio on the East Coast of NSW, Australia. Her internationally loved works are created in various media including watercolour and oil paint. A lifelong love of and commitment to her drawing practise intuitively progressed into a love for painting which has been her key media throughout the past decade.
Her subject matter is often derived from her extensive travel experience both home and abroad. Australia’s unique landscape is a particular source of inspiration, where she works to represent the richness and beauty of this country, its people, culture, flora and fauna.Working mainly within the genres of portraiture, landscape and still life, her thoughtfully detailed approach anchored in drawing is reflected strongly in her work while creating an intimate connection with the viewer.
“Painting is an emotional process for me and very personal. It is difficult to put into words; however, remains to be a constant exhilarating and spiritual journey of passion, perfection and self discovery.”
Kerley’s work has also been associated with a number of organisations including the Australian Literacy Numeracy Foundation or ALNF, 60Thousand, Yarn, Concord Hospital, the Cancer Council, Dollars for Dust and The Fred Hollows Foundation, through fundraising or donations. Kerri has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions and has also been an exhibiting member of the esteemed NSW Royal Art Society. Her award-winning paintings can be found in public and private collections both nationally and internationally.
