Inspiration: Kirsty Mitchell

A friend of mine and fellow artist sent me a link to this photographer’s website last week… I can scarcely believe it’s taken me this long to share her with you!


Every once in a while – and not so very often – you come across an artist who leaves you speechless and reawakens something inside you. That place inside you that is bursting with wonder and longs to believe in a fantastical world.

Kirsty Mitchell’s photography has done just that for me. I dream of creating the kind of wonder that she has created in her most recent series entitled Wonderland. This series has come about after a tragic time in her life in which her mother was diagnosed with a brain tumor. During that time, she took up photography as a way to cope with her mother’s illness – doing mostly self portraits and street photography. Her mother passed on in 2008, but her passion for photography remained and expanded. This series so eloquently brings together her extensive experience as a fashion designer (yes folks, she makes all the sets and costumes herself!) in culmination with her photography. Below are a few of my favorite photos from the series. To see more of Kirsty’s stunning work, visit her website here.
