To be an artist today requires more than creativity. You also need to be a communicator.
Self promotion is something that many artists struggle with. So let me sing your praises!
Many years working in PR, combined with my photography know-how and passion, make me the ideal person to promote or organise your exhibition, photo book, business or self.
I can help you get the recognition you deserve.
Below are some examples of recent projects.

Bluescapes, Photographic Exhibition
by Reiner Spliedt.
Presented in Association with the Head On Photo Festival.
"Kirsten's professional PR support helped attract over 220 people to my debut exhibition. She arranged coverage in The Sydney Morning Herald, Inner West Courier and Mosman Daily as well as keeping on top of all the communications and text needed, so I could concentrate on making the artworks. Kirsten contacted a variety of people including photo groups, heritage groups, government organisations that manage the sites photographed, community groups with active interest in the sites, and curators. She stayed abreast of opportunities within the Head On Festival and connected with groups such as ARTcycle who run gallery bike tours. My exhibition was a great success and even before the exhibition finished its 2 week run, I was invited to exhibit my work as part of a large corporate event, futher increasing exposure for my art."

Flash, Primrose Park Photography Newsletter.
“I am the Curator of a Photographic Gallery. Each month we have a new exhibitor. Kirsten has the task of interviewing the photographer and then writing a page about the person, which is then published in our Newsletter. Kirsten also interviewed me for my exhibition. I found her to be charming and ask the right questions in a most tactful way. She then wrote it up in an interesting and creative way. I have written my autobiography and know the talent required to do this work successfully. I can highly recommend Kirsten as an excellent wordsmith.”
