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 road to the unconscious. When working in Ogburn’s studio at The Rocks, Kerry regularly exhibited at the Harrington Street Gallery.
Kerry’s academic career demanded much time and now that she’s retired, she’s getting back to her other interests one of which is creating figurative sculptures in bronze using the lost wax method.
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.
