A brief history

In October 2009 I made a choice for freedom, despite the fact that I’m not sure yet what true freedom is. I left my rental home without finding a new one. I gave away many of my belongings, put stuff in storage, lent my piano to a friend. Since then I have met life without a plan. I have two teenage daughters and a dog. We have spent time on the road, stayed with friends, camped out. Sometimes it’s just me and the dog.

I want to live my truth. It sounds good but what does it mean? To me it means being myself as honestly as I can. To do, pursue and express what I love. In doing this maybe I will bring a little more love to the world.

I have been super-glued to a life born of fear for so long. I have worked as a photographer for 25 years, producing images to meet my clients’ needs. Though this has left me feeling a little stifled, and often less than inspired, I still love photography and digital art. Now I am choosing to create in a much simpler way, referring only to my own intuitive process, and intent on making work that I love.

Most of my personal work has remained unseen. It is several years since my last exhibition. My energy has previously been focused on ‘earning a living’ and therefore on paid work. I have come to realize that art isn’t complete until it is shared. Hence the blog.

  2. Hi Kirsty, not sure how to get in touch with you but found your blog, it is beautiful by the way! We have had a couple of exhibitions since the fires but my heart has not been in it. This year I am going to make an effort though….would you like to visit and talk about an exhibition? Or just visit and talk? Louise xo
