Kerry Norman is an innovative artist, with a passion for creating and teaching.
Kerry's creations stem from an amazing life journey, raising a family on the land at Gunnedah NSW, overcoming health concerns and evolving on a personal level – a combination of experiences that have delivered more depth and soul meaning to her personally, and her artistic outcomes professionally in her sculptures, paintings and art therapy workshops.
Kerry has a large network of colleagues and friends within the art community. Her contacts spread nationally and globally, as does Kerry’s art experience and exhibitions throughout Australia and Europe. Kerry’s paintings vary in style and mixed media. They evolve themselves beyond the initial plan like discovering pieces of a puzzle, and this is why Kerry is known as an intuitive artist and her work is well sought after.
MORTAL PORTALS™ known as human windows was created by Kerry Norman in 2007. This inspired creation came from a 6 week artist retreat in Greece and Italy lead by Canberra Artist Michael Winters and Maleny Sculptor Janna Parmaijer in 2007. The following year 2008, Kerry held a solo exhibition in Goondiwindi Australia, opened by mentor Val Fitzpatrick, artist in Canberra, and Janna Parmeijer, sculptor in Maleny. A successful showing resulted in an 80% sell out on the opening night. Kerry’s MORTAL PORTALS™ can be seen in many locations as customers continue to purchase the captivating sculptures.
Kerry’s personal growth and love for art lead to a Diploma in Transpersonal Art Therapy and then a Diploma in Counselling.Kerry has experienced the healing power of art and enjoys helping others embrace aspects of themselves that become discovered through the journey of the art process that otherwise would remain unconscious. Creative processes utilise texture and colour, a visual-sensory impression felt by the hands of the artists. There is a potential to tap into self-knowing on a soul level.
Kerry has a passion for sharing her skills and knowledge of art and life whether as a guest speaker at functions or facilitating private, small or large group workshops. These can be held in her studio in the Eumundi/Noosa Hinterland or other venues and towns. Art is a way of finding joy within and discovered parts of yourself as well as creating a sense of well being and fulfilment.

Visual Art, Mixed media & Sculpture
Kerry's personal creation of “human window” sculptures depicting archetypes, mannerisms and aspects of people, ambiguously seen by your imagination. Kerry uses a variety of clay such as coarse raku, which is very appropriate, earthy and grounding. Kerry's sculpture's are contemporary, individual, quirky and unique - and very popular!
Brush strokes of acrylic paints on canvas, Kerry captures her visual memories and imagination through colour creation.
Kerry utilises soft and hard pastels with other mediums to experience the joy of art and to assist others in finding their path through art.
Kerry's art work and classes have been loved by so many over the years. You too can leave Kerry a testimonial below in the contact form. She would be delighted to share your story and kind words.
Val Fitzpatrick (Canberra) - Kerry's first & lifelong mentor since 1980's.
"Much of Kerry's works are influenced by the moods & surroundings that is in. Often images are hand drawn hundreds of times in notebooks, on corners of serviettes, on old envelopes or dockets, until her idea is settled and true. Kerry then takes her idea further on canvas selecting the most complimentary medium for the final work. Sometimes ideas come quickly so there is no prior preparation and the work flows directly from hand to canvas."
“Over the years, despite our differences in ages, Kerry and I became good friends…soul mates actually, with limited time spent together. I say limitted because Kerry’s life on the land was a very full and busy one. She would sometimes be called away from class to attend the needs of the farm. As Kerry’s children grew and became less dependant, she found some time to pursue this desire and she attended classes and workshops and art schools, culminating when she joined me on a study trip to Greece with Michael Winters as her art tutor and after that, a trip to Italy with Janna to get serious about Sculpture. She returned home from these two trips exhausted but fulfilled and ready to attend to the ideas she had amassed in her sketch book for her exhibition."
"Do what you love, and love what you do."
