Kerri Weller is a contemporary botanical artist, specializing in realistic, classical paintings of the plant world. Trained as a graphic designer and medical illustrator, Kerri is equally at home painting for fine art and commercial markets. Her work has a variety of commercial applications from food and product design, to greeting cards and editorial illustration.
A painter with a passion for all things botanical, Kerri's work has been published in Fine Art Connoisseur magazine, juried into numerous international exhibitions and acquired by the Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation. Capturing the beauty of the plant world, her paintings range from small plein air panels to highly finished, realist works. Kerri's design graces the 2018 commemorative gold coin, the Armistice Poppy, by the Royal Canadian Mint. In the role of Exhibition Chair, Kerri led a country wide team to create Art of the Plant, a botanical art exhibition featuring native plants of Canada, presented by the Canadian Museum of Nature in 2018.
Kerri resides in Ottawa Ontario but spends a little of every summer in the Maritimes. Married to a Maritimer, she treasures their summers exploring this wonderful region of Canada. Her favourite times are hiking in Gros Morne and Fundy National Parks, Passamaquoddy Bay by ferry boat, and cycling the southern and Fundy coastlines of Nova Scotia. Can anything rival the 40 foot tides of the Bay of Fundy?
