Kerry Dodds was inspired to paint as therapy in 2019 after discovering a fascination with light and colour, and how they affect or convey mood.
Kerry is a self-taught artist, working mainly in acrylic and mixed media, taking inspiration from landscapes and the human experience. Kerry works from her home studio in Petrie, Queensland.
