"Like with many of my other artworks, I like to paint animals that represent a feeling or emotion. For me this peacock looks majestic and evokes a sense of strength and self-assurance - as well as a feeling of determination and a 'never give up' attitude."
Kerry Beazleigh’s artistic practice began whilst encouraging her young son to pursue his artistic talents. She was surprised to discover the healing power of art in her own life.
Kerry feels like painting transports her to another world; anxiety still exists but now there is something more powerful that can override it. It’s like there’s nothing else except each brushstroke that she is working on. Art breaks the hold anxiety has over her.
Kerry's favourite medium to work with is oil paints. She loves their smooth buttery consistency, which allows her to explore many different techniques.
To Kerry, art is an ever-growing lifelong learning process and she is looking forward to seeing where this journey takes her in the future.
