Tom Kerr was born in Holywood, County Down and educated in Sullivan Upper School.
He is a retired Associate of the Royal Institute of British Architects.
Tom began painting in watercolours in the 1960’s. In 1978 he formed the Kerr Art Group, which during its 30 years existence held Annual Exhibitions in Holywood, and as a result of these the Group donated over £80,000 to various charities.
Tom has written five books of poems each illustrated with his own paintings.
In the 2009 Queen’s Birthday Honours List, Tom was appointed a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for services to the Arts in Northern Ireland.
Tom now works mostly in acrylics, painting from a wide range of subjects. He has paintings in private collections in several countries including Australia, Germany and Holland and has exhibited work in Galleries in Dublin, Canada and New Zealand.
Irish Times on R.U.A. Exhibition:
"Tom Kerr’s quiet harmonies of tone, not unlike the quality of his namesake Tom Carr."

"The gentle softness of Tom Kerr’s paintings."
Belfast Telegraph on Malone Gallery Exhibition:
"Tom Kerr’s strongly impressionistic landscapes, ...his loose, free approach."
