Kerry Hays Gronewald

Born 1987 in Washington, D.C.

Graduate of The University of Georgia

Currently lives and works in Atlanta, GA


Kerry's predominantly abstract, mixed-media work is heavily influenced by architecture and the interplay between landscape, design and human relationship. She pares down elements of architecture into arrangements of strong, graphic shapes. Alternating between fluid, expressive gestures and very structured work, her pieces are often a study in discretion. In addition to gallery exhibitions throughout the Southeastern US, Hays' pieces can be found in numerous marketplaces across the US and abroad and is a favorite of designers for her wide breadth of work and distinctive voice. 

Largely self-taught, her chosen mediums are acrylic, gouache, oil stick, plaster, and collage on stretched canvas, raw linen and cut canvas sheets designed for framing. 

Kerry works from her studio in the heart of Midtown Atlanta, at The Biltmore, an Atlanta landmark built in 1924 and welcomes visitors by appointment.
