Janette Kerr is a romantic traditional landscape painter, who’s style is contemporary and experimental.
Kerr gets her inspiration from the extreme outdoors - foul weather - wet, dark and moody conditions.
A lot of her work has emerged from The Scottish Highlands and Southern Ireland, where she has walked absorbing and painting the hills and coastal areas. She says “walking is integral to the process of making and collecting images for paintings. The walker is not merely a spectator but an active participant in the environment, engaging the body and the mind with the world.“ She even paints in the dark - feeling the landscape through sound and touch.
