Lin works in oil, producing colourful contemporary landscapes, leaning towards abstraction. Lately she has been creating little gem-like watercolours of ‘scrappy flower arrangements’ with loose watercolour washes, which are also available as giclées. Her colours are fresh yet gentle, often pinks, purples and the yellows of spring blossoms. "I search for seasonal colour, looking around the hedgerows for berries and flowers, especially wild flowers and a few wee garden ones".
This year she will will be at East Hendred Village Store, site 168 for the whole of May. East Hendred is a beautiful Oxfordshire village and the shop is one of the oldest examples of Tudor Brickwork. There will be a children's art workshop on 1 May, 2021 where children can draw a building in their village to populate a map of the village which Lin will create from all their drawings. Please check her website for more details.A commission form sales will go to The Alzheimer Society.
She will also be in the charming village of Brightwell-cum-Sotwell with a group at site 186 from 21-23 May. All her work may be viewed on her website.
Lin Kerr's best place to be is in her studio - a large conservatory looking into the garden with her three silver birches . She lives in Oxfordshire and roams the countryside with her Westie looking for treasures to paint and draw. She draws, paints and teaches art constantly and is very excited to be running a Kids' Big Draw workshop at East Hendred Village Store, where her paintings are on display. On the 1st May, primary school children will collect an art-pack and draw a building in the village to populate a village map, then enter a lucky draw.
Lin is a very active member of Oxford Art Society, helping manage the website and Instagram for OAS. She teaches an oil painting group in her village, and tutors at Ardington School of Craft and Oxford Summer School. She has a fabulous way of teaching drawing-online using the Notan system she devised.
