Kirsten Perry 


What is your professional or training background?

Bachelor of Design (Industrial Design), Bachelor of Art (Fine Art – Gold &Silversmithing), Advanced Diploma of Mulitmedia.
What do you make, create or do?
I make jewellery, ceramics, sculpture, animation, design and I teach Mulitmedia at TAFE. 
What skills do you have that help you run your business, or what skills would you like to develop?
I would love to make exhibition work 4 days a week and teach 2 days a week. 
What skills do you have that help you run your business, or what skills would you like to develop? 
 I have broad range of design skills ranging from 2d and 3d materials, web and graphic design. I would like more woodworking skills with power tools.

List five people, businesses or websites/blogs that keep you motivated and inspired, and why?
1. Artist Brendan Huntley because of his unique style, humor, music and that he is a local boy expressing himself. 

2. Craft Victoria because of the wonderful gallery, shop and the amazingly supportive staff who are makers themselves, such as Milly Fleming.
3. Noise in My Head by Michael Kusak on a Sunday night on 3RRR radio. His choice of music is wonderfully weird eclectic and I often listen to it while I am making work.

4. Artist Jon Pylypchuk because of his connection to mad concepts that are absurd, funny, dark and unashamed of what they are.

5. Blog and newsletter Designboom because good ideas are so easily shared and enjoyed from all over the world. Creativity comes in all shapes and sizes.
