From an early childhood in Johannesburg, I have been interested in arts and fascinated by science. It was at a young age that I developed a passion for drawing and a curiosity for astronomy. In 2011, I began to further this passion and studied visual arts at the University of Witwatersrand. In 2015 I graduated from the institution with a BA degree in Fine Arts. I later received a studio bursary at Assemblage Studios and I am currently working there as an independent artist.
My art practice is focused on the body politics of the human consciousness and the perception of space, voids, infinity and emptiness specifically the interaction between dark and light spaces and how these spaces affect the spectators sense of self. In this sense I am working within the idea of "sublime" experience. My fascination with the void, astronomy and the experience(s) of negative space, has led me to investigate, not the void, but what the void is and does to the spectator.
