An Interview with Artist Kerry Steele
Many of you will need no introduction to a favorite artist and interior designer in the blog world. Kerry's art has been featured at Aesthetic Oiseau, the Pink Pagoda, Bijou and Boheme, Chinoiserie Chic, and Oh Captain, My Captain. She has also been included in many juried exhibits which can be found at

My inspirations vary widely. Often they are just vague ideas of an intended mood using specific color combinations and other times I see flowers or a landscape on Pinterest and just get going on a canvas.
3) Kerry who are some other artists that you admire or have been mentors to you.
I absolutely adore Christina Baker, who has been a sweet friend and mentor. Her art is top notch and she is a darling person too.
K) I do admire her works of art!

4) How did your color palette come into being? It is very distinctive.
I am beginning to see that my color palette of choice is totally authentic to who I am, what I love.
People that meet me in person in conjunction with my art tell me I look like my paintings. I think if I took a photo of my closet it would look like one of my paintings. Hmmm..maybe I'll paint my closet.

6) Kerry where is your studio, in your home or a separate space?
My studio is at home. It is currently still in the dining portion of my kitchen. I have plans for a dedicated room but a few home improvement projects are in the way of that at the moment.
(K) I have done both and will say that sometimes it is nice to work early in the morning or late at night without leaving the house!

7) What are some words of wisdom you would impart to the beginning artist of any age?
I think the best advice is just do it. Make your art. Feel the fear and jump in anyways. If its a little scary then you are probably doing something interesting.
