In Classical Greek mythology, Pandora was the first human woman created by the deities on the instructions of Zeus.

Each of the deities helped create her by giving her unique gifts.
Pandora was given a large jar and instructed by Zeus to keep it closed. However she had also been given the gift of curiosity, and so ultimately opened it.
When she removed the lid, all of the evils, ills and diseases, that mankind had not known previously, escaped from the jar, but it is said, that at the very bottom of her jar, there lay hope.'

On her original pieces, Kerry works with texture, acrylics and resin. She works in layers to build up depth and create more light. She uses resin as a medium rather than a varnish on the original paintings.
With her ‘Unique Editions’, whilst in essence they are prints, each one is some way unique. She creates small 3D additions which are hand-worked individually and adhered to the print. The background is also hand embellished, and all the work has resin hand-applied, making each print look like an original painting.
