Meet Kerry Kerry Newell.
Our artists workshop safaris welcome artists of all standards to enjoy the creative beauty of a South African safari in the company of international wildlife artist and tutor Kerry Newell.
We combine the thrill of a wildlife safari with your passion for art, encouraging the development of artistic skills, while experiencing Africas sensational light, space, abundant wildlife and magnificent landscapes. All the while enjoying luxurious accommodation and our award winning service.
Kerry will lead small groups from beginners to experienced artists (and non-painting partners), to South Africa in 2018.
Kerry Newell is a professional wildlife artist based in Cheshire. Her services as a commissioned artist are sought by clients across the UK and further afield in Australia, America and Switzerland.
Her mission is to ignite, inspire and encourage the creative flame that lives in all of us and through her exhibitions, teaching and demonstrations, bring about an awareness to the plight of so many of this worlds diverse and beautiful creatures, whilst having the amazing opportunity to combine her lifelong loves of wildlife and art.
Born in rural Leicestershire, England in 1966, Kerry has always held a passion for art and wildlife. Since her first commission of British wildlife at the age of 14, Kerry has grown to become a highly sought after wildlife artist.
Her keen eye for detail has earned her high recognition with the world famous art material manufacturers Caran d'Ache who commissioned Kerry to produce paintings for their headquarters in Geneva, a collaboration that continues to this day.
Kerry also finds time to share with and inspire others through teaching. And this is undoubtedly where her charismatic and effervescent personality comes into play.
For whether it's running her Wildlife Art Workshops, demonstrating to art groups and societies, talking to students in schools and colleges, or gently encouraging and guiding an individual through 1:1 tuition, Kerry has without any doubt a very rare quality of wanting to share her talents with others. This generosity to share coupled with her capacity as a patient conscientious teacher and her absolute passion for the subjects she portrays inevitably creates a confidence that is both tangible and better still contagious to all who have the privilege of knowing her.
