About Kerrie Leishman:
I remember as a child regularly travelling in the back seat of a car gazing out the window at the sweeping skies and landscape. I lived on a farm and the vast expanse of space had a major influence on my art practice especially with my compositions later on.
My fascination with the atmosphere of dramatically changing landscape, the drama played out with light and shade has always been my inspiration. Where the earth and sky merge, a glimpse of light, a moment in time often frenetically realised with the desire to discover and connect to a part of me.
I was born in Creswick Victoria and studied Fine Art at B.C.A.E. Ballarat. I have had 21 solo exhibitions and been involved in over 48 group exhibitions.
