With an academic background in Teaching (Bachelor of Education, majoring in Arts, Deakin University) and Arts Therapy (Masters of Arts Therapy, RMIT) Kerrie is able to blend two elements of interest, - that of the Arts and Wellbeing.
Kerrie was a co-owner and manager of The Studio@54 in Ocean Grove from 2013-2020. Arts and Music events that celebrated local and international artists were a feature of the Studio space, along with a passion for sharing and learning about Australian Indigenous arts and culture. Kerrie facilitated and organsied exhibitions, workshops, and performances in the beautiful limestone building until it was sold in 2020.
Majoring in Art during her Education degree, Kerrie was able to explore Design, Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture & Ceramics. Three dimensional work is what appealed to Kerrie the most and she began her exploration into Ceramics and Sculpture.
During her Masters Thesis the Heuristic and Arts Based methodology that Kerrie used, she focused on creating artworks in natural materials. This has been a consistent element throughout her artwork.
Today Kerrie explores and develops her own Visual Art practise from her home Studio in Geelong.
She is a proud member of the Geelong Scuptures Inc.
Whether it be printmaking, painting, drawing or sculpture, nature and the environmental elements of line, texture, shape, pattern and color are the constant inspiration of her work.
