ABOUT THE ARTIST

Kerry L Brown

IMG_3797 2.jpg

An emerging artist, passionate about the Australian landscape, with a love of quirky, mid-century decor


'Opening myself up to pursue my art, It's like I am seeing the world more clearly, more vividly; I feel a strong compulsion to depict my surroundings as they feel, rather than simply what I see before me', says Kerry.


Kerry's works are confident, illustrative and textural, her style is ever-evolving, yet remains truly unique. Beyond the layers of colours, brushstrokes and linework is an underlying delicacy – an empathy, a 'quietness' – that at once reflects both her quiet, thoughtful nature and an innate ability to capture the psyche of her subject, be it landscape, interior, or other.


Based in Bendigo, in regional Victoria, Kerry is inspired by the natural environment, often using colour palettes derived from the local landscape in her artwork.



Kerry has a Bachelor of Arts from La Trobe University, and a Certificate III in Visual Arts from the Northern College of the Arts and Technology, and regularly exhibits in Melbourne and regional Victoria, and currently works from her home studio overlooking her native bush garden.

FALLS CREEK RESORT

Falls Creek Resort Management Artist-in-Residence Program
February 2021
January 2022 (dates TBC)

Following on from an absolutely amazing initial residency period in February 2021, I, together with four fellow artists, will return to Falls Creek in 2022 to exhibit, to host workshops, and to launch an exciting new art product range. We're still planning and watching the Covid-19 situation closely, but hope to be able to update you all really soon.


This exciting collaborative art project is made possible with the support of the incredible team at Falls Creek Resort Management. Thanks, Elise and team!




BENDIGO POTTERY

Artist-in-Residence (Tenancy)
November 2019 - September 2021

I had a wonderful little studio/gallery space at the historic Bendigo Pottery complex, 15 minutes north of the Bendigo CBD. Sally and Rod were wonderful 'landlords' and are great supporters of the arts, particularly locally. I have decided to end my tenancy for now, and have moved my studio home while all this Covid-19 stuff works itself out... I'm still available for commissions or to meet up, by appointment.
