Kerry graduated with a BA Honours in Fine Art from Reading University where she was a pupil of Sir Terry Frost and after obtaining a PGCE became Head of Art at Rockport Preparatory School in Northern Ireland. Then after ten years as Art Co-ordinator at Westville House School in Ilkley West Yorkshire Kerry retired from teaching and now paints full-time in her studio in Ilkley.

'I am delighted to be included on the website which lists and offers information about professional artists within the Bradford Metropolitan District (BMD).

I have exhibited with the Ilkley Art Trail since it began in 2011 and have enjoyed much success, as well as connecting with many incredibly talented artists who had worked previously, like me, in splendid isolation.

As a result seven of us in April 2018, had our first collaborative exhibition which was very successful. See above for a photograph of me with the lovely Alan Titchmarsh, who is from Ilkley and who opened Ilkley Manor House officially during our exhibition there. He spoke to me about my work particularly the one shown 'Solid as a Rock' and was very knowledgable and enthusiastic about the work of all seven artists.

In 2018 and 2019 I have exhibited my work in London at La Galleria, Pall Mall and the Menier Gallery, Bankside respectively and performed at Tate Exchange, Liverpool in 2018 where I had pieces in Art-E-Motion's Vending Machine alongside artists from all over the world.'


I am a Founder Member and Planning Group Volunteer involved in setting up this exciting new contemporary art gallery in Ilkley.

ILKLEY MANOR HOUSE was gifted to the town in the 1960's to be both a museum and art gallery and so establishing the SOLAR GALLERY within the stunning Manor House is a natural extension of its development.

The SOLAR GALLERY aims to provide a vibrant heritage, creative and fun arts hub in Ilkley offering a wide range of activities, events and exhibitions, as well as collaborative work, meeting and studio spaces in the adjacent cottages.
