Statement

Kerrien lives on the coast of Argyll and is inspired to paint by the wild beauty of this ever changing landscape. She enjoys experimenting with the textures and effects that she can achieve with acrylics in particular, and uses these to give movement and light to her paintings.
“The unpredictable and (often!) wet weather in Argyll creates a spectrum of ever shifting light that can change the way a particular seascape, headland or woodland appears. I aspire to capture this in my paintings, using the opportunity and flexibility that I find with acrylics.”
