Fiona Kerr

Biography

I have always had an interest in art and the many different ways and methods available to express thoughts, emotions and events. There have been paintings, poems and pieces of music that have stayed with me from the moment I experienced them. That is what I am endeavoring to share.

I have studied music, tried my hand at poetry and often sketch and draw to let out emotions and to create this story is sharing a personal aspect of myself.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up and what influenced your writing?
I am from Melbourne, Australia and I have been lucky in that I have always been an inner suburbs person. My father loved photography and on the weekends, years ago, we would travel to different parts of the city or inner areas to get different kinds of effects from shadows on buildings and that interested me. Also watching him flicking through his many ideas kept me interested as well.
What's the story behind the book you have written?
Throughout my life I've grown up with many aspects of art. I've done courses in life drawing, ceramics and studied music part time at a music college. Particularly when I was studying music, I was deeply moved by many pieces of music, given that you needed to research the aspects around why a piece was written and/or why it was positioned within an opera. Some pieces left me very emotional. Also, some movies have left me with lasting memories. These are aspects of art and expression. Art is a brilliant communicator.
