Kerr Ashmore is a British contemporary landscape painter and photographer. Inspired by land, sea and sky, her works are reflections of nature, memory and emotion. Kerr's work is beautifully aesthetic, often large in scale, and always emotionally powerful.
Her work has been featured in many exhibitions in the UK, Europe and further afield and is held in collections worldwide.
"Growing up in North Yorkshire, UK, so close to the Moors and the cold North Sea, I was surrounded by beauty and inspiration. I have always been so mesmerized by the ever-changing movement of light and dark that can so drastically change the natural landscape around me and my own emotional response to it."
"I work between my studios in the Northeast of England and the Southern Spanish mountains. I love to paint and I have a strong need to create. My work explores memory, emotion and the way a particular place, environment or ever-changing light can affect the way I feel. "
"For me, there are so many different aspects to the creative process...one of those aspects is being out in nature, and one of my biggest sources of inspiration is the sky...particularly a stormy one. I like to walk high up into the hills where I'll sit or wander, taking photographs or creating small studies (I call them my emotional landscapes because they're more about my emotional response to what's around me)."
