About Kerry Evitts

From an early age, Kerry exhibited a natural flair for creativity, finding solace and a profound sense of balance in artistic endeavors. During a tumultuous adolescence, she delved into various techniques and mediums, using art as a lifeline to navigate through the depths of despair.

The exuberance evident in Kerry’s creations emanates from the profound truth that art, in essence, rescued her from the darkest recesses of depression.

Upon relocating to Australia at the age of 18, Kerry’s innate desire to assist others propelled her toward a career in psychotherapy, where she dedicated many years to aiding individuals in their mental health journeys. However, with the arrival of her three children, Kerry felt a magnetic pull back to her artistic roots, using it as a means to reconnect with herself and manage her own well-being. Infused with both joy and the capacity to inspire joy in others, Kerry’s artwork draws inspiration from the subconscious, vibrant hues, and the beauty of the natural world.
