Name Sarah Margaret Knox Moody
Profession or Passion Photography, Creative Expression
Where are you from? Another World
You were nominated by the beautiful music healer Jessica Freites, whom we interviewed a few months ago. As an artist, what or who inspired you to do what you do?
Jessica is a dear friend and inspirational guide – she’s a ying to my yang – she inspires me. Women inspire me, and always have, sisterhood. My sister and mother have been my subjects since day one – since my father gave me a camera 19 years ago. All of the images in this interview are of my sister, darling Claire BE Moody, my main muse. Sisterhood inspired me to open Maggie Knox,(link), a creative incubator space for gathering, making and exhibiting work.
What has been your favorite project so far?
That’s a tough question as each project is a stepping stone into the next – they’ve each paved my path bringing me to where I am today. I love to take photographs, to make collages, to tell stories through my own experience. Sharing the people, spaces and places I have encountered.
Describe a day in your life
Haha that’s so hard for me to do. I am a gypsy, a traveller. Every day in my life is completely different – though they all start with a glass of water, a cup of coffee with nondairy milk and honey.
What would be the title to a book about your life?
What advice would you give to your 20-year-old self?
Don’t take things so seriously.
Are you living your dream life?
Absolutely, life is short and so very sweet. Each day is brand new, I try to enjoy them all as deeply as I can.
