 ARTISTS


Kerrie Warren

Kerrie Warren - Bushfire Series

Kerrie is a real dynamo and produces paintings, ceramic pieces and design items.She has work in exhibitions all around the world and Australia and she is a great force in the community as well as being a very positive dynamic artist.

"My aim as an Abstract Expressionist is to bypass self-censoring thought; this allows me to be influenced by layers deeper than the surface. I enter the studio without a preconceived idea and over time have learnt to trust in the process itself and be guided by instinct." Kerrie Warren
