Full Biography

I was born in a family where talent and appreciation for art was highly regarded. Through a tedious journey of endless practise and learning in community art projects, colleges and workshops. I progressed a long way to become an accomplished artist

I define my work as a process whereby happiness and joy is captured in the daily routines and patterns of the people enjoying themselves. I’m also focusing on portraying uniformity of people in groups, and within these groups all obstacles and challenges can be conquered. I’m most fond in of abstracts,often using bright colours and textures to manifest an African feel to my work. I currently reside in Phillipi East, Cape Town.
