Kerry Nobbs – Artist Biography

Kerry Nobbs was Born in Brisbane in 1952 and grew up in the Tweed – Gold Coast regions. He is a self taught artist who painted many regional murals in his early career. Kerry Nobbs has been professionally painting in oils since 1984, painting traditional landscapes and seascapes in which light and atmosphere are an important feature. Rugged mountain ranges, remote valleys and especially rocky, deserted and pristine ocean areas are my main source of inspiration.  Kerry has won many awards in his career, and his paintings feature in collections world wide.
