Moving to Melbourne in early 2011 she connects her practice with a sense of home and the kitchen, trusting her taste and instincts for painting. Billie Justice Thomson's work reflects her obsession with the kitsch, nostalgia and iconic food imagery. Her paintings on glass and perspex and in watercolour reference old shop windows or displays with symbols of domestic simplicity. Really she is playing homage to the kitschy delights of eating, drinking and the day to day miracles of existence.
