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

Inspired by her surroundings, Kerry likes to create art with a specific place in mind. Common themes in Kerry’s paintings include people and nature,
“I studied Natural History Illustration at college and I have been obsessed with meticilous representation of nature in paintings ever since. I lived on a farm 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.”


BACKGROUND AND EDUCATION

Kerry started creating large scale art at a young age; as a teenager she spent most of her free time at a local theatre, painting scenery, creating costumes, props, posters, and getting involved in any creative opportunity. It was here Kerry also discovered a love for working with others and completed a youth work apprenticeship before moving on to study Illustration and Media Design. Kerry gained employment before even graduating from within the marketing department of a global company. She left this position to further her studies and completed a Degree in Multimedia while working for the local authority as a Youth Worker and Arts Tutor. Kerry now works full-time as a Freelance Artist. Kerry was commissioned to paint the largest gable end mural in Fife and was also behind a piece of town art in Glenrothes which involved over 200 members of the public in it’s creation. She is regularly asked by local authorities, businesses and community groups to collaborate on creative projects.
