Kirry’s formative years were in the traditional rag trade and interludes with the Elizabethan Theatre Trust and the Sydney Opera. As an educator throughout her artistic endeavours, Kirry has tutored at the Australian Catholic University Teachers’ College, Ku-ring-gai Art Centre, International Fibre Forums, University of Southern Queensland, the Queensland Flying Arts Program, TAFE, various universities and high schools, as well as community project groups.
