Hi I’m Kerry and I create original limited edition linocut prints and metal sculptures all based around my love of my house plants: from architectural leafy plants, spiky cacti to juicy succulents.
Originally from London, I moved to Bath in 1994 to do a Ceramics degree at Bath Spa University College. When completed I decided to stay in the South West and eventually I moved to Bristol at the end of 1999 and have been here ever since.
I started being a full time artist back in 2006, and at that time I was mainly painting figurative work. Which I enjoyed at the time but after a while I lost interest and began doing more printmaking, beginning with various etching techniques, then moving onto screen printing and then finally on to Lino printing.
It was several years ago that I had a creative block and just decided to do a Lino print of one of my many many plants and I haven’t stopped creating Botanical prints.
In 2011 I completed a MA in Multi-disciplinary Printmaking course at the University of the West of England.
I now have a lovely working space at Pennywell Studios in Old Market, which is on the first floor of a converted warehouse. It’s a huge room that used to house documents for an insurance company. This is where I create all of my colourful botanical lino prints and metal sculptures
