JANNETTE KERR (b. 1959) is a painter of wildness.  She seeks out places where change is swift and powerful, where the sea boils. The energy within her paint is uncompromising, incorporating all the energy of action painting with her tangible felt experiences.

KERR normally paints from her studios in Shetland or Somerset; but often seeks out even more wild and remote experiences. In 2016 she was part of an art and science expedition to the Antarctic.


In 2011 KERR was elected President of the Royal West Academy of Bristol. She is also an Honorary Royal Academician.
