My Inspiration

The Why

For me, photography is an alchemical journey of connection. When I feel connected, there is a sense of timelessness, of sense of being both anonymous and a part of everything at the same time. Exploring the challenges of disconnection within today's society, this is a way of connecting into that which is within us and that which is far greater than us. I seek resonance with the essence of things.

Still profound soft moments of connection in each pool of art - such generosity to share this subtle perception - I feel quietude and thoughts brim - Open Studios 2023

The Marshes (inspired by Lord Dunsanay’s The Kith of the Elf Folk) – I loved this picture so much I ordered the book of the story to dive into the image even deeper. Kate you have captured the wonder of the transformative power of myth so beautifully
