SPIRIT: Conversations with Creative Woman
20 years ago I had a dream - to create a book celebrating the creative female friends in my life.
I had just purchased my first piece of significant art for my 35th birthday from an incredible woman called Piera McArthur. When I met her I wanted to know more about her, about her life, who she was, how she got to this point in her creative career...but more importantly - I wanted to photograph her.
20 years later and the dream to create this book became a reality when I teamed up with a talented writer called Jannine Wilkinson. We met at my partners work Christmas party...and we couldn't stop talking about how we both wanted to do a book. She loved the idea of the artists and the dream became a reality.
Showcasing 34 extremely talented woman at varying degrees in their creative careers. The majority of them 'fly under the radar' - only really known by people in their own circles. Some just at the beginning of their careers, others with a rich 55 years of creating under their belt.
Either way this was a journey that I couldn't conceive finishing, let alone publishing without an incredibly dedicated team of women around me. Together we have published a book full of incredible photographs and stories.
