We asked Kerry to describe her inspiration for A Very Bloomsbury Sort of Day;

I don’t usually plan compositions in advance, however in this instance I based the painting on a sketch I made after reading about the Bloomsbury Group. I am an incurable romantic and wanted to capture the mood of curiosity, boldness and defiance that characterises (in my mind at least) the free-spirited lifestyle of sisters Vanessa Bell and Virginia Woolf, although the seated figure is not a direct portrait of either one of them.
