Kerry Walford graduated from York University where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree (with honours). She specialized in painting, drawing & historical techniques. She went on to study Interior Design at Sheridan College, where she received her Diploma (with honours) in 2009. While dabbling in both fields for several years, it was art that kept calling for more.
Kerry has been a practicing artist since 2006. Her paintings have been exhibited in various juried shows including; The Artist Project, One of a Kind Show.
The Artist now resides in the quaint village of Cayuga, ON, in an 1840’s English-style Farmhouse, with her hubby Adam and daughter Clementine, along with one feisty Pug-Boston mix named Rommie.
As long as I can remember I have been fascinated with observing and sketching out my surroundings. The act of creating brings me much joy and I liken a painting session to a form of mediation.
I work in oil and I am fascinated by light, shadows, interesting compositions, and the exploration of colour. I am inspired by many things, but it is the landscape that I am truly drawn to. Whether it be a city laneway, a rural country road, rolling farm fields, large cloudy skies or the mountains of western Canada, they all light a fire inside me.
My biggest joy is seeking out these wonderous sights and experiences and translating that excitement and energy to canvas. I love adventuring though my surroundings where ever they may be, with a camera in hand or even better painting en plein air capturing the moment as I see and feel it.
