Kerry Walford graduated from York University where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree (with honours). She specialized in painting, drawing & historical techniques. She went on to study Interior Design at Sheridan College, where she received her Diploma (with honours) in 2009. While dabbling in both fields for several years, she decided to dedicate more of her time to art.
Walford has been a practicing artist since 2006. Her paintings have been exhibited in various juried shows including; The Artist Project, One of a Kind Show and the AGH Annual Art Sale. She is currently represented by the AGB shop (Burlington), AGH shop (Hamilton) and PWD Gallery (Waterloo).
Walford now resides in Cayuga, ON, and recently opened her own gallery & studio in her family's 1840's farm house.
As long as I can remember I have been fascinated with observing and sketching out my surroundings. The act of creating brings me much joy and I liken a painting session to a form of mediation.
I work in oil and I am fascinated by light, shadows, interesting compositions, and the exploration of colour. I am inspired by many things, but it is the landscape that I gravitate to most. Whether it be a rural country road, rolling farm fields, large cloudy skies, or a city laneway, they can all be great sources of inspiration.
Seeking out these wonderous sights and experiences and translating that excitement and energy to canvas brings me an abundance of joy and satisfaction. I love adventuring though my surroundings wherever they may be, with a camera in hand or even better painting en plein air capturing the moment as I see and feel it.
