“In my work I use items such as enamelware, ceramics and textiles, as well as native Australian flora to capture a sense of quiet contemplation, history and beauty. I arrange my compositions carefully, allowing for the exploration of balance, tension, light and atmosphere. I am always searching for clarity and harmony. What I find most interesting about this genre is the contemplative potential in it, the suggestion of the kinetic in the static, the metaphysical promise present in the very words, still life.”
