Bob Kerr: Places

Bob Kerr's creative practice combines his two artistic endeavours: painting and writing and tells the story of New Zealand's history, people and the landscape.

Bob Kerr was born in Wellington, and has a DipFA (Hons) from The University of Auckland. He has written and illustrated a number of children's books, receiving the Best First Children's Book Award in 1993 for The Optimist (1992).

His paintings are held in private collections across New Zealand and overseas, with his best-known work appropriately appearing on the cover of Michael King's book The Penguin History of New Zealand (2003).
