“I left my shoes behind,
and wandered back into my childhood.
Through the hedge in the garden,
Across the puddles, chasing butterflies,
And into the forest, marveling at it all,
And here I discovered
The child I was, was still within.”
– Kiri, 2020
I’m often asked about the inspiration for my artwork and the biggest one is always that haze of childhood memories. Moments growing up on a tiny village near the woods and beach. Exploring the landscape and having wild adventures the way only children can.
