Winner of the Fine Art Trade Guild 'Best Selling Artist' Award 2012!!
Kerry Darlington was born in 1974 on a coastal town of North Wales, the talent of Kerry Darlington was fuelled by a love of beautiful old picture books (Rackham, Dulac and Beardsley were her favourites), which developed into a degree in illustration in 1996.
Following University she left to work in Bolivia, South America before returning to the U.K. to work as a designer and illustrator for an exclusive company, specialising in sculptured clay murals for private residences in the Middle East, United Arab Emirates and the U.S.A.
Kerry Darlington worked for many years with line drawings and watercolour, diversifying as she became more confident with colour. She now works with a variety of mediums, acrylic and oil.
Her acrylic paintings are uniquely formed upon board or canvas first, using texture and gessos. The colour is then built upon in layers to create depth. Her abstract pieces were initially based upon satellite photographs of Earth which created the 'Volcanic' Collection in 2005/2006. This has since diversified to include contemporary landscapes and figure-work, all carrying her unique style.
Kerry Darlington now works independently from her studio at home in North Wales, using all of these influences and her artistic flexibility to create pieces of art in a wide variety of subjects.
