A New York-based painter with boundless energy, Kerri McKay devotes her abilities to a wide range of challenging projects. She has developed her style through years of academic training, with several European trips serving as the inspiration for much of her work. Using her skills to perceive the brilliance found in ordinary settings, she paints to selectively bring that detail to the canvas. The brilliance may be sunlight which fills a place with absolute beauty, or it may be eventful colors that leap out from a casual environment.
