Kerry Darlington

Kerry Darlington is well known for her unique and contemporary artwork. She infuses colour, style and life into her work. Born in North Wales, Kerry’s passion for art was inspired by a love of beautiful old picture books (Rackham, Dulac and Beardsley were favourites and later on, Pre-Raphaelite painting and Art Nouveau). This developed into a degree in illustration in 1996, originally intended to lead to a career in book illustration. Following University she worked in S.America before returning to the U.K. to work as a designer and illustrator for an exclusive company, specializing in sculptured clay murals for private residences in the Middle East, United Arab Emirates and the U.S.A.

Following University she worked in S.America before returning to the U.K. to work as a designer and illustrator for an exclusive company, specializing in sculptured clay murals for private residences in the Middle East, United Arab Emirates and the U.S.A.

Kerry worked for years in pen and ink perfecting her drawing skills before diversifying into watercolours and later, a variety of mediums, acrylic and oil. Following her experience with the clay murals, she became interested in painting upon heavy textures and experimented widely to produce original effects. Her acrylic paintings are uniquely formed upon board or canvas first, using textures and gesso.  The colour is then built with several transparent layers to create depth.
Her work has become increasingly sought after by collectors, in 2007 she was a finalist in the ‘Best Up-and-Coming Published Artist’ category in the Fine Art Trade Guild Awards, as voted by UK Galleries. Since then she has become one of the bestselling artists in the U.K. with commercial work being exhibited in many galleries.
