Originally from East London, I obtained my Diploma in Graphic Design at the Ruth Prowse School of Art in Cape Town in 1983. I worked in the graphic design and print industry before moving to freelance work, lecturing at the Austin Ellis Graphic Design School and then going on to establish my own graphic design and print business. In 2006 I changed direction and began exploring more tactile mediums through which I could express my ideas. 2010 heralded my first group exhibition, [IN]SIGHT, where I showed rubber and metal sculptures at Rust-en-Vrede gallery. Since then I have exhibited frequently with a diversity of works: conceptually and in various media ranging from video, through installation, to printmaking.
My graduation in 2013 with a Bachelor of Visual Art completed an enriching journey through the University of South Africa.
I have taken part in several group shows nationally, and have had work selected for the Sasol New Signatures, Vuleka and Thami Mnyele merit awards.
I am currently working independently and teaching from my studio in Kommetjie.
