Learn to paint and draw quickly, with energy and passion
Loosen up your approach representing a subject in 2-D. By using a broad and rather ‘wild’ technique, a painted colour base is established upon which, at various stages, some refining of the subject is done using drawing media. We want to capture the elements of a subject that have engaged the artist without becoming trapped by our effort to represent the physical ‘exactness’ of the subject. The idea is to work quickly with energy and spirit. You will work from A4 size images (no smaller) of anything you are passionate about - landscape, portrait, still life, interior. Kerry will demonstrate at intervals, working from a projected image.
Born in Hawaii in1952, Kerry grew up in Guatemala before migrating to Australia in 1974. Her childhood was impacted by the contrast and colour surrounding her. She studied Fine Art at Middlebury College in Vermont spending her third year at the Sorbonne in Paris studying art history and language. Her art making was then confined to sketching in journals and life drawing classes at the Place des Vosges. In her final year at Middlebury she explored techniques and disinherited classical tenets.
After obtaining her Masters in Materials Conservation from the University of Canberra, she formed a company and as Director of Art and Archival Pty Ltd she fulfilled a passion to observe and conserve works of art on paper for others over 20 years.
She now works full-time in her studio in Bungendore, NSW, where she shares ideas and art with her husband, a sculptor. Having received many awards, prizes and grants for her art, Kerry has actively participated in many shared and solo exhibitions since 2001. She is represented by Wagner Contemporary Gallery in Sydney.
