Kerris, could not be more Cornish, he was born and raised in the Duchy, and has remained there throughout his working life. He won a scholarship to Penzance School of art at the age of 14, where he studied a wide range of subjects including pottery under Michael leach, son of the celebrated Bernard Leach of St. Ives.
After two years, he had to decide whether to become a potter or to become involved in the world of commercial art and design, luckily for us he chose the latter, in time he established himself as a master sign writer, from which he ran a very well known and successful business, save for two years, when he served as a nurse in the R.A.F.
Whatever his main task, Kerris continued to paint whenever time allowed and demanded for his work rapidly grew.
