About

Originally from London, Kerry trained as a ceramicist at Bath Spa University and now lives and works in Bristol. She completed an MA in Mutli Disciplinary Printmaking at the University of the West of England in 2011 and is now based in her studio at Hamilton House, Bristol.

Her current body of work is about the plants that she shares her home and studio with, drawn to their architectural shapes and contours. The wide range of leaf colour and pattern in these cacti, succulents and leafy plants allow Kerry to develop layers of texture and tone within the forms.

Kerry uses mixture of reduction lino print and mono print methods (using the rollers like paint brushes) to produce variable edition prints. I sometimes etch into the lino with caustic soda to create more brush like marks.
