Steven Cox: Can you tell me a little about yourself and your background? Are you working full-time in your studio?
Jordy Kerwick: I was born in Melbourne, Australia in July 1982. I’m married to a goddess with two naughty boys (Sonny and Milo) and live a pretty simple life. Good music, good books, good podcasts (anything historical, political or paranormal is ace) and as I get older, I seem to be challenging myself to look more and more ungainly (I recommend a yoga pant, flip flop combo for extreme comfort). Our house is full of beautiful art (some bought and some swapped) and we live a few minutes walk to the beach, the botanical gardens and a few pubs. I have a marketing background and have started several university degrees, failing them all miserably (and got turfed out of one for doing so badly).
I’m working full time in the studio these days, which is great, as I’m utterly obsessed with art and painting. I’ve got two little studio mates that keep me company too – Jet and The Boo – Miniature Schnauzers. They don’t judge my work and make me feel slightly less psycho when discussing what I’m doing to myself. My studio is smallish bungalow at the back of our place. I also share a space with a mate for bigger works (Justin Williams – incredible painter)
