Interview with Artist Katy Kerr

 Katy Kerr
Ionia, M

Good morning, Katy.  Welcome to Vision and Verse.  How would you describe your artwork? 
I do a variety of artwork from charcoal work to acrylic painting, murals, mixed media in the form of custom mailboxes, hand painted patio stones, glasses and tiles. I tend to do a lot of animals but have done portraits and other subjects as well.

What is your favorite medium? 
I enjoy creating with my charcoals best as they just pop and have such life when they are done.

Favorite food.
Seafood, almost any kind.

Where would you like to visit? 
I would love to visit Italy and Greece someday along with Ireland.

Favorite musical artist. 
I can't say I have a favorite artist as I listen to a variety from Christian to rock to country and everything in between.

 Do you listen to music when you work? 
Yes almost always it makes me happy and that always helps produce better artwork. What? A mixed play list with a variety of artists and genres.

What makes you laugh?
Goofy people...

How old were you when you started creating art? 
I have been drawing as long as I can remember but as far as building my portfolio I started pretty much in 2008 when I was laid off from the civil/survey CAD drafting field.

Where do you get your inspiration? 
I tend to have ideas that seem to just be meant to come to life come to me and work from there.

What do you do when you get artist's block? 
Listen to good music and talk to my friends.

Who is your favorite artist? 
I love to look at artwork from all other artists, can't say I have one “favorite.”

Favorite work of art. 
My favorite work of art at the moment is my steam punk angel I did in charcoal.

Best book you ever read. 
The bible :p

Who is the one person who has influenced your personal life the most and why? 
Everyone that has been in my life has built me to the woman I am today. Each taught it's own lesson I was meant to learn.

If you could sit down and have a conversation with ONE person, living or dead, real or fictional, who would it be and why? 
Sandra Bullock, I think she would be down to earth and is an inspiration
to me.

What advice would you give someone who aspired to be an artist? 
Find something that captures your soul.

Do you have any links so we can follow you?
