Kerhys was born in Lancashire and now lives and works in the East Midlands. In 2014 she gained a degree in Creative Expressive Therapies at the University of Derby, which equipped her with the skills to become a Recreational Therapist for the Ministry of Defence. Despite working full-time, Kerhys devotes much of her time to developing her skills in drawing and painting. Kerhys also teaches casual life drawing classes to artists and non-artists alike; directed by her passion for sharing knowledge and engaging others to discover their artistic heart. Without the means to study abroad formally, Kerhys seeks out and fully immerses herself into whatever educational opportunities she can find. Through this self-directed teaching, she discovered the “alla prima” method of painting with oils. Also known as direct painting, alla prima involves the layering of wet paint onto wet paint, allowing Kerhys to work with intent and intuition without being consumed by perfection or unnecessary details. This method of painting incubates the artist in the process, bringing awareness to the truth of the subject in the moment it is being painted. This truth manifests in an atmosphere which creates space for the viewer to experience within their own narrative.
