Lin Kerr

Lin Kerr explores and exploits oil paints in layers of scratching back and adding marks, using a variety of tools and often just fingers or a palette knife to manipulate the paint. She often works over a background of text which is physically integrated yet stylistically juxtaposed adding contemplation. All her landscapes, often understated and generic. originate from her observation, usually from Oxfordshire.

Lin’s background is deeply rooted in fine arts, and after many years in calligraphy and graphic design, she has recently returned to her first love of oil painting. Her graphic design / calligraphic teaching took her to all parts pf the UK, Belgium and South Africa. She is one of the better known British Calligraphers.
