Kerry Doran was born in Bendigo. Kerry has been painting in oils his entire life and has had exhibitions in Melbourne ,Sydney, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
"I try to convey in my paintings a sense of light and shade and am happy only when this balance has been achieved. Space , light and atmosphere are crucial to my art. Everything I paint I hope has perfect harmony, where nothing stands out to call attention to itself,nor violates a sense of wholeness or compactness the painting projects."
Exhibitions have been at the Wagner Art Gallery Sydney, Delshan Art Gallery Melbourne (1995 to 2004) ,Gallery Carla San Francisco,(2001 - 2004) and Panoply Art Gallery Melbourne (2013-2014)
