My paintings can be best described as visual poetry because they don’t just represent the world as we know it, but capture the essence of it, a presence that cannot be put into words. I'm currently exploring elemental philosophy and the way that nature speaks to the human psyche through the language of images. Also, ideas in alchemy (transformation in the paint and my physical involvement in transforming the substance by scraping, pouring and stabbing etc.) My paintings are self-reflecting (both for myself and my audience) and explore a dark, sensual romanticism. They are there to evoke and engage the senses (physical and emotional) and to encourage new thoughts and experience, and to make a connection. They are feeling-paintings. When I paint, there is no predetermined outcome in mind. Through a complex inner dialogue with the paint and the influence of self, a sort of alchemical/metaphysical transformation takes place and something new is born into the world – a painting with a vibration of its own.

I never studied formally. This was a blessing in disguise as it allowed me freedom of creation to find my own distinct style. This has been mostly developed through painting with Ricky Burnett (who I started with in 2011) who has to me become a mentor and friend. I was a resident artist at Assemblage Artist Studios and have exhibited with prestigious galleries such as David Krut Projects and Everard Read Johannesburg. I’m currently juggling motherhood and painting from my home studio in Johannesburg, South Africa.
