Kerry Nobbs

  • Artist’s Statement

    I try to let the viewer discover a path into my work and let them just get lost in the image, so they can forget about their stresses in the day. Not everyone can get away for a few days to recharge, so I hope they can sit in front of my painting at the end of the day and let their mind relax

  • Biography

    My earliest memory, is drawing at around the age of eight. I was always influenced by my surroundings and current interests. I started with pencils and moved on to acrylics and eventually oils.
    I painted murals on the Gold Coast in the early 80's and eventually turned professional with my first art prize win in 1984. I have exhibited in galleries across Australia and Noumea. My latest first prize was in 2019, the landscape section, of the d'Arcy Doyle Art Awards

  • Influences

    I was influenced by the early Australian Artists, like Streeton, Roberts and Gruner. I draw inspiration from the general landscape, particularly where atmosphere and light play an important part.
