    Kerri Burnett


    Burnett designed the $75 Gold Coloured Coin—Canada Geese (2007).

    After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Alberta, Burnett has spent the last decade exhibiting her work and establishing an international reputation. Selected by Ducks Unlimited Canada as a National Supplemental Artist in 1995 and 1996, her painting Spring Pond – Gadwalls, became Wildlife Habitat Canada's 1997 Federal Duck Stamp. A successful participant in the Christie's 1996 Wildlife Art Auction in London, England, Burnett's work has been exhibited at the prestigious Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum.

    In 2004, her creation–of four different designs highlighting the life stages of Canada's Grizzly Bear—was unveiled as the Royal Canadian Mint's platinum proof coin. Just six years earlier, she also enjoyed this distinction for her exceptional coin set design featuring the magnificent Gray Wolf. Burnett is an elected member of the renowned Society of Animal Artists in New York.
