About me

I’m Kirsty, a charcoal portrait artist, photographer and film maker based in Christchurch, New Zealand.

I love telling stories through imagery, capturing beautiful moments and the essence of someone or something. I am inspired by visual arts that express emotion, spark joy and passion in people, and tells a meaningful story without words.

The Journey

I’ve always been drawn to poetic and artistic aspects of life. When I was a child, I had a wild imagination. I loved to document and create the world I saw, and bring new worlds to life.

I lost my light during high school, when I went through some rough times. That’s what sparked my passion for charcoal art. To be able to express myself in a deeper way.

In 2017, I traveled to South Africa and around Europe. This experience opened my eyes and heart to the world and reignited my passion for photography. You can find some of my travel photos here.

In late 2021, I went on a personal development journey and discovered a new world of possibilities for my life and career. This led me to attend a business course and pursue my creative passions while still learning, discovering and evolving.
