Millie overcame abandonment and injuries to become a beloved pet. She was found motherless in a shed, along with her siblings, in Mt Isa. She loved exploring my painting set ups, and it felt natural to me to paint her with my home-grown pumpkins. Millie was very ill, and underweight when she came into care. Through fostering, this tiny girl was able to recover at her own pace, and find a wonderful home where she is much loved. On the right is my monitor with a recipe for Chouquettes - this was Millie's original foster name as she was the tiniest of 10, and resembled a little pastry puff.
I love blending traditional still life themes along with modern things like PC monitor. I love having technology peeking in as a way to set my paintings in their specific time period and as a part of the narrative of the stories I am telling.
