Kerry was born and raised in Nebraska but has spent her whole life with the heart of the urban city beating loudly in her. As soon as she could she bolted for San Francisco, since then she’s lived on the west coast nearly all her adult life most recently the last 13+ years in Seattle. Growing up Kerry spent a great deal of time drawing, painting, sculpting and any creative endeavors she could find to keep her busy. When the time came to “grow up”, it never occurred to her that she could be a grownup who did art. So, she didn’t and has spent the last 30 years working in high-tech pretending she was not an artist.
In 2018 she found Fogue or rather Fogue found her as she began to build on her art collection. Thru Patti Curtis Hair, Kerry became involved first as a patron, then partner and now is the owner of the Georgetown Fogue Studios and Gallery. The community has inspired her to start creating again and yes grownups do art.
Kerry currently works with acrylics, encaustic, and mix media to create uplifting small pieces of figures in normal life reflected in an art landscape. Her major influences are Frida Kahlo, Robert Rauschenberg, Keith Haring, and for the most recent pieces Japanese artist Tatsuya Tanaka.
