Welsh artist Kerry Darlington makes amazing art work. If you dont believe me go and see for yourself. Her use of acrylic and oil, textures and use of gesso, as well as glazing the final product, makes for a very original looking style that is totally different from other artists.

Darlington was inspired to do a degree in illustration by old picture books by authors such as Rackham, Dulac and Beardsly. Which, as well as travelling and working abroad, led her to become the artist she is today.

Tree Of Life by Kerry Darlington

Her first collection in 2006 was called the “Volcanic Collection” and was based on satellite photographs of Earth and quickly became very sought after. Her newest piece is no exception, Tree of life is an extremely popular piece due to its total uniqueness in the art world at the present.

  1. I can see why the “Tree of life” is so popular, the photos don’t do it justice. I think it’s the combination of the colours and the raised texture that make it so unique.
