Kerry studied fine art at the Julian Ashton Art School in the 1970s, but feels she gained more from her mentor the late John Ogburn who introduced her to modern art and the ideas of Carl Jung. She agrees with Jung that dreams and works of art are the roads to the unconscious. When working in Ogburn’s studio at The Rocks, Kerry regularly exhibited at the Harrington Street Gallery.
Last year Kerry was a finalist in the Tom Bass Prize for Figurative sculpture.
Kerry has only one criterion for a work of art: that it expresses an emotion. All her works express her unconscious concerns at the time of execution.
