Kirsty Mitchell | Fine Art

Kirsty Mitchell began her career studying fine art, photography and history of art, specialising in Costume for Performance at The London College of Fashion, which led on to a First Class Bachelor of Arts degree in Fashion Design and Textiles at Ravensbourne College of Art. Upon graduating, Kirsty spent the next decade as a senior designer for a global fashion label specialising in surface decoration and fabric manipulation, before returning to photography where she began a new and deeply emotional connection with the medium during the treatment of her mother’s cancer. Following the tragic loss of her mother, Kirsty turned to photography to help deal with her grief and embarked on her now revered series entitled ‘Wonderland’, created in her mother’s memory and inspired by the fairy-tales her mother read to her as a child. The international acclaim for her work led Kirsty to leave her fashion career in 2011 and pursue her future as an acclaimed Fine Art Photographer.

Kirsty’s belief in beauty and fascination with folklore has become the root of her inspiration, with work that has led her to be described as a multi-faceted artist with talents and artistic direction that combine to produce beguiling, dream like images – something which Kirsty calls ‘fantasy for real’.
