About Me...

I graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine art in Cape Town in 2015 with my BAFA majoring in printmaking. The following year I graduated with my honours in Curatorship in 2016. Since then I have been working within the creative industry in galleries and currently in a framing studio. Over the years I have also taken part in various printmaking, bookbinding and book restoration internships to further my practical knowledge. During my studies and in my current artist practice, books and artist-books have been one of the main sources of inspiration for my work. This is rooted in the fact that I am dyslexic and my relationship with books and words is slightly different to that of the average reader. I have always been fascinated by a book’s objectivity, how they act as carriers of knowledge and by words as imagery rather than carriers of meaning; as I could often not access the coded meaning within words. Through my work I continue to explore those relationships in the form of printmaking and book arts; further developing and expanding those concepts of words, knowledge and books.
