I am a visual artist based in South Africa where I was placed in the Vuleka Top 40 (2021 and 2022) and the Sasol New Signatures Top 100 (2021). I have exhibited throughout the country and have an international client base too.
I am enamoured with the extraordinary and draw inspiration from surrealism and magical realism and create composites using mixed media, which express my fascination with the sciences, the social sciences and encompass psychology, whimsy, humour and the macabre.
My art explores the places beyond reason and the familiarity of everyday existence. It is a manifestation of an urgent, unquenchable need for the expression of years of unfulfilled longings, losses, triumphs, lessons and personal evolution. I deconstruct feelings, thoughts and societal norms and examine them through the lens of my personal paradigm.
My love of Jungian theory, anatomy and biology has enabled me to discover and express powerful and emotive personal symbolism. I seek to provoke thoughts and feelings which deserve examination and connect with the viewers of my work in both a subliminal and emotional manner which transcends the banality of the labels we give ourselves and others.
