Nancy Kerr is a photographer who brings her skills as a watercolorist to the camera lens. Her love of the outdoors has led her to the challenge of photographing birds in their natural habitat. She has shot bird photographs in five states during 2004: Alabama, Florida, Colorado, Tennessee and North Carolina. She has participated in photographic workshops led by George Ritchey of Birmingham, Byron Jorjorian from Tennessee, and Tom J. Ulrich from Montana.

Nancy studied at the Silvermine School of Art in Connecticut, and she studied watercolor painting with George B. Sutherland, a well-known New England artist. She holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan School of Music and a Master of Music degree from Converse College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. She was a violinist in the Alabama Symphony for four years.

Ms. Kerr is a member of the Shades Valley Camera Club, Rocky Mountain Outdoor Writers and Photographers, and the North American Nature Photography Association. She is a resident of Vestavia Hills, Alabama.
