The artwork of Kerry Wilson focuses on contemporary Australian landscape. Kerry lives on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia and works “en plein air” as well as in the studio. Her work is grounded in the romantic tradition of landscape, yet the pared back essential lines shapes and palette add an abstract quality. Her work elicits emotional responses that tug at memory and personal associations to the landscape.

As an artist for over 20 years, Kerry is passionate about drawing and painting.
With the immediacy and excitement of the mark, drawing is a natural means of self-expression.
Drawing allows us to represent and understand the world we live in.
Drawing invites communication and entertainment.
Painting too is so much about the mark and the exploration of colour.
Kerry aims to promote and celebrate drawing and painting as a cultural activity through exhibiting her work and teaching.
