Kerry Anne Boer was born in 1957, grew up in the Northern suburbs of Sydney and was educated in the public schools system of New South Wales. She has worked directly with her husband in the Sydney stone industry for over 18 years.
On Xmas Eve 2011 her love affair with natural stone sculpture began when her Brookvale stonemasonry business imported Australia's first state-of-the-art 7o axis robotic stone milling machine. She now sculpts with all types of natural stone including marble, limestone, granite, sandstone, bluestone & onyx.
Kerry is a self-taught, Australian “Cyber Sculptor”, creating concepts using inspiration from life and then sculpting them in virtual clay inside an advanced software programme to form a 3D maquette.
Each work begins as a traditional quarry stone block and is reduced to the required size with stone specific diamond wire technology.
Kerry’s robot is then programmed to remove the major waste from her raw stone block with innovative, specially designed and stone specific diamond milling tools, leaving Kerry with a rough form of her 3D concept shape to be traditionally hand shaped and finished to perfection.
In 2012 Kerry studied Anatomy for Artists with Scott Eaton of London UK. She is a current student at UNSW Art & Design (COFA) doing her Master of Arts by Course Works and is a full member of The Sculpture Society.
Her works are strongly influenced by movement to music (Latin American, Ballroom & Salsa dancing), poetry, scent and humour, the interplay of water & light on surfaces, fashion and the soft voluptuous curves and flowing swirls of the female form.
She has exhibited her sculptures in various Exhibitions since 2013
