Heritage

Kerry Darlington was born in 1974 in Rhyl, North Wales.

She was inspired by magical fairy tale picture books and stories during her childhood, and held a particular fascination for Arthur Rackham’s intricate pen and ink work. This influenced her to take a degree in Illustration, with intentions of becoming a children’s book Illustrator. During this period she discovered the Pre-Raphaelite artists and Art Nouveau. She found this work so hauntingly beautiful that it captivated her completely and it still has a profound effect on her own art.

” I paint all that i can’t see and a little of what i can.” (Kerry Darlington)

Kerry has built a reputation for her original, decorative designs using 3D elements and resin which have become hugely popular. She focuses primarily on trees and nature which has been inspired by the Art Nouveau Period.
