Creating art is experimental in the development of a concept. Much thought and practice is involved in what determines a work. For me, being an artist is a delicate balance between the idea you wish to express and a clear understanding of the techniques you need to grasp in order to best express the intention. I share insights into the studio, sneak peeks into current work on the go as well as invitations to upcoming events.

I have always been intrigued by visual dialogue and the role art plays in society, which naturally directed my studies. I was born in 1989 in Modimolle, Limpopo, before turning two, my family relocated to the Cape for my Fathers work who a Nature Conservationist was. At the age of ten, we relocated to Settlers in rural Limpopo. In 2007 I relocated to Pretoria to pursue my BA at Tshwane University of technology. After graduating, I met my fiancé and followed Hugo to Heidelberg, Gauteng, where we currently reside.
An artists' studio is an intriguing space, full of ideas waiting to happen, numerous experimentations muses and inspirations. An artist's studio houses failed pieces, rehashed work, exciting new pieces, and, most importantly - work in progress.
I have spent many years building up a versatile studio on a farm in Heidelberg, Gauteng. The set up includes a fully equipped print house, ceramic studio, sculpture workshop. An architects table which has become one of my favourite pieces of equipment, it provides a large work surface ready for mind mapping and productivity. The studio is surrounded by the Suikerbos nature reserve, which triggers much artist navel-gazing syndrome, yet in the same breath, presents the perfect place to develop work mindfully. Studio visits are available via email bookings.
