ABOUT

Kerry Wilson is a Scottish muralist and painter, working from her harbour-side studio in Kirkcaldy, Fife.

Inspired by her surroundings, common themes in Kerry’s art include people and nature. She most enjoys combining landscapes with figurative work to create images that work on more than one level.

“I studied Natural History Illustration at college and I have been obsessed with meticilous representation of nature in paintings ever since. I also lived on a farm near the for 6 years, where I was surrounded by beautiful landscapes and wildlife. This gave me great inspiration for my work. Similarly, so does Fife’s beautiful coast. I like to highlight the beauty in our surroundings and the small things in everyday life that make us happy and humble, like playing in puddles on a rainy day.”
