I was born in South Africa in 1987. I obtained my master’s degree in architecture at the University of Cape Town in 2012.
In 2013, I moved to Daejeon, South Korea.
Since 2016, my work has been focused on the intangible stories that make up who we are and help us make sense of the world. I am very interested in the ability we possess to construct, deconstruct, and reconstruct our worldview and ideas of self, based on our experiences or external factors outside of our control.
My interest in personal stories has also led me to explore themes of memory, perceived reality, and desires.
I use a variety of mediums including metal, plaster, wood, and fabric. There is a direct correlation between the materials and scale of my work and the fact that I am working in Korea on a year-to-year basis. The work needs to be either small enough to fit in a suitcase or be able to fold up into a more manageable size if a sudden move is required.
I would like my art to be inclusive and make the viewer feel a kinship or sense of relatedness. I believe that we all experience similar emotions or feelings on our journey in life and that art is a way for us to connect and relate to each other.
