We are delighted to welcome back the art of Kerry Darlington, The Art Of Storytelling.
Kerry was inspired by magical fairytale picture books and stories during her childhood, and held a particular fascination for Arthur Rackham's intricate pen and ink work. This influenced her to take a degree in Illustration, with intentions of becoming a children's book Illustrator. During this period she discovered the Pre-Raphaelite artists and Art Nouveau. She found this work so hauntingly beautiful that it captivated her completely and it still has a profound effect on her own art. In the years that followed, Kerry began to build a reputation for her original, decorative designs using 3D elements and resin which became hugely popular, focusing primarily on trees and nature. Inspiration for these was taken from the Art Nouveau period, particulary Klimt’s infamous ‘Tree of Life’. Today, she continues to paint themes of myth and legend, poetry and stories.
So we offer you a sneak peak at the first of this year's releases and will endeavour to keep you abreast of all the latest news from Kerry's studio as soon as we have it!
