“I paint what I know.”
— Kerrie Smith

I am a visual artist and painter. I paint the world that I have experienced from my childhood experience in Somerset, England to more recent experiences in Southern California. My abstractions, Land and Light Patterns emanate from light and color patterns that I perceive in both urban and natural environments.

I am the founder and ongoing Creative Director of Art Walk for Kids/Adults since 2001. A Non Profit Organization that focuses on creating with artists with disabilities. I am continually learning new ways to see through the eyes of my students, their unique experiences and untrained visual representations inspire me daily.

I am British and have a BA from Central School Saint Martins, London and worked as a Theater Designer throughout Europe and USA.  I’m also a member of the Los Angeles Art Association and Gallery 825 (www.laaa.org).
