Art on Exmoor since 1893

Kerry Darlington

Kerry Darlington

Born in a coastal town of 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.
Kerry now works independently from her studio at home in North Wales, using all of these influences and her flexibility to create pieces of art in a variety of subjects.

Kerry Darlington is one of the most sought after and influential artists at work in the UK and a major figure on the international art scene. Her boundless creative gift, technical brilliance, mastery of colour and above all, her infinite imagination, have taken her far beyond the everyday and turned her into a fine art sensation.

The haunting beauty of Kerry’s work grows from a unique combination of pattern, nature, energy and nostalgia. Her stunning three dimensional mixed media pieces are unmistakable in style and completely individual, revolving around the theme of myths and legends, poetry and stories. She creates her spellbinding narrative images with a range of materials including resin and metallics. She achieves a unique, translucent texture through the accumulation of layers which adds both depth and light.

Her published works are described as ‘unique editions’ as they combine a printed element with original art. Kerry creates small 3D additions which are hand-worked individually and adhered to the print. The background is also hand embellished, and all the work has resin hand-applied. Therefore although they are in essence a limited edition print, every piece has the appearance of a unique original painting.

Kerry works in her studio at home in North Wales, combining all of these influences and creating work which is innovative, individual and inspirational. Her work is in huge demand, and in 2012 and again in 2014 she was named as the UK’s best-selling published artist for her extraordinary unique editions.
