This is not a still life ​


I studied at the National Art School 2002 -2005 and work across diverse disciplines including painting, sculpture, animation, poetry and drawing.


My artwork is under the ongoing title of The Wattle Room and I love to explore ideas of the ongoing struggle and complex relationships between two powers, that of the natural world and humanity, using everyday and found objects and creating them into colourful abstract compositions.  I love to combine colourful interiors with exterior landscapes, as this way of working becomes a metaphor to represent humankind in the natural world.


The long-term central theme is inspired by my love of language such as modernist poetry and literature, Samuel Beckett, Wallace Stevens are favourites, which explore the aspects of living in a world that conveys the nonsensical and the irrational, absurdity and humour.
