Born in London, the son of James Lennox KERR and his wife Mornie (Elizabeth Lamorna BIRCH), the artist daughter of Samuel John Lamorna BIRCH, Adam was brought back to Flagstaff at Lamorna as a new-born.
He was for many years a Director of Marine Hydrographics, working largely in Canada and Monaco, and his working career has taken him on expeditions world-wide whilst his avocation was sketching, drawing and painting. In retirement, he and his wife Judith KERR (also a working artist) are active in the Lamorna Art Society, of which Adam is the Hon President. Adam is also a Trustee of the Newlyn Art Gallery (Building Trustees).
Adam died at home in Lamorna in August, 2016 following an heart attack sustained in France. We join with Judith and his sons in mourning his loss to the marine and arts colonies of the area. His funeral will be held on 16 August in the parish church at Paul.
