My work has been highly influenced by the world of commercial art and graphic design. This translates to my art in many ways. My still life paintings are careful composition full of allegories, which capture a moment in time where all represented items are meaningful beyond the composition.

"Lifesavers on Blue (Pep O Mint)" is one in a series of lifesaver still life paintings that pay homage to the nostalgic memories of eating lollies as a child and playing with the wrappers.

This painting was awarded Highly Commended in the 'Pirtek Still Life Art Prize' (NSW) 2019.

'Toujours Lamour (Love always)' is a still life painting  that features two red roses in a glass bottle. Another red rose lays on the ground to the right of the bottle. A single rose petal sits on the left of the bottle. The glass bottle is the classic Coca-Cola shape, but the typeface on the glass has changed to the words 'Tourjours Lamour' in the classic coke branded font. The backgrounds is a dark cloudy blue gray. A head an shoulder study of a woman (the artist) with should length wavy blond hair, wearing a floral patterned kimono style top. She has an expression on her face of bewilderment on her face. She had a white rope (drawn on with oil stick) tied around her face, head and shoulders. The background is a vignette of royal blue with a metallic sheen at the top, fading to black and the bottom. The background looks like deep water. The woman's face has a pink hue and features dramatic light and shadows.
