                Dreams, that you dare to dream... Suddenly (Cam Tapp)DSCF5723 positives of negative unnamed-4 unnamed-6

Born and bred in the Manawatu, New Zealand, Kere’s history is steeped in Art and culture as evidenced in many of her paintings. She has followed a career in various aspects of Art, Colour and Design since arriving in Sydney in 1996. Her lengthy experience with Interior Design/Styling provides Kere with a disciplined approach to the design elements and principles (which she frequently disregards…) while  pushing the boundaries, and creating personality, layering and joy in her spaces and artworks.  Her passion in the field of colour, make not only the form of the artworks unique, but the layers of colour alone provide impact, with their ability to co-exist and feature, yet not dominate or overwhelm.

Kere is reluctant to pigeonhole herself into a genre or painting style, and takes great joy in experimenting. She considers herself an emotive painter, creating an aspect of her own life dedicated to freedom and expression, in a world often harsh and rigid. Kere paints purely because she is simply unable not to, her practise transcending logic or explanation.  She believes painting to be the purest purge of the soul that one shares, for the results to land wherever they may, for whoever they may.

Kere’s works are held in private collections within Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, England, and America.
