Kerri Pratt – Fine Artist
I do like working with fine artists! Kerri Pratt is a painter who has a building reputation and is the current holder of the biennial £18,000 Jonathan Vickers Fine Art Award, one of the biggest in the country. The award is intended to bring a rising artist to Derbyshire to produce work inspired by the county’s landscape, heritage and people. I have know Kerri since my days as a resident at Banks’ Mill Studios. As part of getting ready for a new exhibition of her work Kerri needed some “action” shot in her studio at Banks’ Mill. Along I went and captured her surrounded by her striking landscapes. These images have now been used as supporting material for her exhibitions.
