Lives and works in Cape Town, South Africa
I am a South African-born visual artist who works primarily in print media and video. I completed my postgraduate diploma in Fine Art in 2019 and a Master of Fine Art degree in 2022 at the University of Cape Town Michaelis School of Fine Art. The primary focus of my work is memory in its varied forms – individual, collective, familial, physiological and philosophical. My postgraduate work focused on how a conceptual engagement with printmaking allows print to be used as a metaphorical device to express the processes and experiences of memory.
