PAINTER, PASTELS, MIXED MEDIA, SCULPTOR
Creating Joy through Art” is Kerry’s mantra, through her own art of “Mortal Portals”(TM) Sculptures which are quite Quirky and along with her mixed media paintings to facilitating art workshops by encouraging your inner Joy and artist to come out and play, usually in an abstract and symbolic way . Everyone’s art is unique to them. It’s all about the process not the end results.
A natural Artist Kerry was supported and encouraged by her lifelong mentor the late Val Fitzpatrick of Canberra, she has been creating all her life and has experienced the power and healing aspects of art by visually enjoying looking at it, or through the process and joy of creating it.
Kerry paints in all mediums, acrylics, watercolour, ink and Pastels, and sometimes using 2 or 3 mediums to gain interesting results. Kerry says “I love all mediums, the colours and textures, I paint intuitively.”

More About Me
Kerry lived on a rural property near Gunnedah NSW where she was married and raised 3 children. After 25 years they sold their farm and moved to Goondiwindi where Kerry explored and discovered Clay sculpturing through a visiting artist Janna Pameijer of Maleny Sunshine Coast. The idea of the “Mortal Portals were born” and this led to a successful exhibition which was held in Goondiwindi (2008)
After experiencing personal and health issues, Kerry seemed to be guided to go on a journey of knowledge and self discovery. For a few years she lived in Maleny, Brisbane and Broadbeach as well as completing a Diploma in Transpersonal Art Therapy for a year in Melbourne (2012) than working at Eden health retreat (2015/16) on Gold Coast for a year as an art facilitator, before settling and buying a property near Eumundi Sunshine Coast in late 2016. This is an amazing and nurturing space for both herself, family, friends and others to relax and enjoy her creative workshops.
Kerry has also participated in group art tours to Greece (2007 & 2010) and Italy (2007)as well as an artist in residence at AIR Vallauris on the French Riviera (2015) for 2 months.
