Born amongst the quiet mid-West Australian coast, Kyrah has always been inspired by the environment around her, whether its in colour schemes, objects or textures. Currently residing in Perth, Kyrah’s art takes influence from both the rough Australian landscape that borders on the beautiful beaches. Along with the urban influence from her underlying love of architecture of modern cities and its bustling inhabitants.
This contrast of inspiration, along with her emotions, sets the tone for each of her pieces. Her work has no limit to its style, she has softness with her watercolour work, and boldness with her acrylic work. She works on a range of projects, previously doing commission pieces for a book, and working on mediums from paper and wood to surfboards and skateboards.
Before this project working with me on the bikini design, she had only dabbled in still life, as she typically focused on faces and places, but her love for all things ocean inspired her process resulting in a satisfying outcome for both of us.
Thanks so much for your beautiful work Kyrah! You can checkout her art on Instagram @kyrahparris 💛✌🏼🌻
