The Tuscan Diva by kerry nowak
Pastel 50cm x 65cm
 
There she was standing in the middle of a scrubby field, head held high, "big hair", strutting her stuff, "The Tuscan Diva". Let the others stand in line, she knew she was special and that one day somebody would fall in love with her and paint her and she was right!

Biography
Born in Scotland in 1965, Kerry discovered her artistic talents aged 3, the halcyon blue gloss paint stripes on the garage wall and on her best friend surprising even her mother. Initial fascination with a box of pastels given to her mum exploded into a passion after visiting a Degas exhibition; the vividness of the hues left a deep and lasting impression. Her love of painting and drawing won her a place at the world renowned Glasgow School of Art at the age of 17, graduating in 1986 with a BA HONOURS.

During her time in Germany she has worked in teaching, freelance design and raised a family. Extensive travel provided Kerry with the visual stimulation she craves and she is often to be seen sketchbook in hand, architecture and landscapes being her preferred motifs.

Kerry’s work has been exhibited in Milan, London, Glasgow and Edinburgh and has also featured in The Glasgow Herald, The Scottish Field Magazine and on BBC Scotland, and recently in Gail Sibley’s HowToPastel Blog and in the Cyber Art Show.
