Diary of an Artist, Music is my Medicine, Photography

Lawless by name, Lawless by nature

Here are some of my fave pics from my photo shoot a few weeks back with fiery gypsy bohemian musician Felicity Lawless, one of my oldest and goldest friends, a shredding guitarist, magical poet and nature dreamer. My go-to person when I need a magicality check and dropping of the bullshit of babylon. My soul sister, guitar goddess and 4am friend. She has just released a beautiful new album, Ouroboros – which is the symbol of the snake eating its own tale, reminding us of the ever-renewing cycle of life.

We shot these pics in Felicity’s Tallebudgera Valley forest home on the Gold Coast, Australia. A heavenly artist’s retreat, strewn with paints and easels, books upon books, artwork hanging from walls and rafters, guitars in every corner, some working, some in pieces, parts of drum kits, PA systems, incense, candles, organic food and Felicity’s beloved canine mate Bjorkee (evidently named after one of Felicity’s most revered musical artists, Icelandic goddess Bjork).

I am addicted to order, and Felicity’s artistic chaos somewhat challenged my natural aesthetic, but 14 years of friendship has made us masters of meeting somewhere in the middle. Coffee was drunk. Corners were cleansed. Cobwebs were saved. Music was cranked. Art was made. Sisterhood was strengthened. And Felicity’s natural beauty, resonating from deeply within, beamed its way into my awaiting lens…
