Her creative journey started at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Cape Town, South Africa in 2010 where she completed a year in the foundations of design, this included, Life Drawing, Art History, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Jewellery Design, Fashion Design and Surface Design (an advancement of textile design exploring the multi-faceted manipulation of textiles or any material surface. She chose to complete the remainder of her time at University taking the path of a Surface Designer. It was here she explored ways of pushing the boundaries between art, design, and ideas, and getting carried away in the conceptualisation stage of the process, cross-pollinating ideas and techniques at which point she was labeled a "drifter".

Qualifying with a National Diploma she left South Africa for the UK in 2014.

After some time in the corporate world, a number of freelance graphic design and art opportunities presented itself.

2014- Outdoor artwork and cocktail menu for tiki bar at Purple Turtle, Reading

In 2020 she joined Creative Locale, a community of artists from across the UK, based in Caversham, Berks. This venture should bring about more opportunities for community based projects, workshops and creative talks.

She continues to push the boundaries of creative capabilities, never restricting herself to one creative art form. After all the true nature of an artist is to create no matter the medium or art form.

As I write this, I am missing these kids a ridiculous amount. I come back to my memories of this perfect day more and more. The Gambia has a very special place in my heart. The Gambia, is a vibrant, diverse, beautiful nation. But through the cracks of this inspiring place lies many hardships to make ends meet and a tragic lack of basic necessities in two of the most important areas of life on this planet- Health & Education. This brings me to why I am writing this today and to The Gambia Project. "Knowledge is power"- the Headmaster of the Serekkuta Primary school put it so simply. The books are so important to him and he has hopes to have them in a proper library. At the Kotukala school, there are anything between 57 and 63 students PER CLASS. It's a private community school which means they can't turn children away and just have to cope with the numbers. They hope to manage better in the future. They lack simple school supplies tremendously. If they don't have enough pencils for the students the students can't recite any of the work which puts them behind. The pencils are often broken in two to share between the students who use them till the very last stub of lead. This leads me to The Gambia Project. The Gambia Project is a PENCIL DRIVE (PLUS NECESSARY ACCESSORIES- SHARPENERS AND ERASERS)! I have created A5 mixed media artworks inspired by my travels to the fishing village in Gambia. Each artwork costs just £4-ALL PROCEEDS going to the Bracknell Forest Lions Gambia Appeal.

Kebba our wonderful host has been communicating the same important message to all of the government officials we met during my trip that we can take a lot from- "We are part of a bigger picture and We are building a nation". I learned a lot, and I also got to teach. I took a bit of Gambia with me and I left a little of me there.


If you would like to be a part of this beautiful journey for the children of The Gambia, purchase an artwork! You will be buying them much needed, basic equipment in return and have that reminder with you every day, that you did a little thing for a big step forward.

UPDATE: The first shipment of pencils, sharpeners and erasers has already headed to Gambia. We raised 294 pencils, 135 eraser and 140 sharpeners.

We live in a powerful, evocative time that invokes feelings of compassion, empathy, and the need to save the world more and more, BUT with this driving force of activism comes a deep dark truth that lives within our anxieties that equally brings forth our unconscious, ingrained habits of the primitive self that reinforces specism, racism, sexism and our obsession to dominate, to control, to rule and win over. We are obscured by appearances and material, possessions, and ego.


I spend everyday thinking my head into a whirlwind of wanting to save the world in one click of a button, in one monumental message or piece of art that will create a conscious, harmonious world, because we are not all the same, but we are equal.


It's time to Live by Love.


And so, with my whirlwind mind, I enter into my "Human Nature series" that will be torturous, it will be vibrant, it will be conscious, it will be a mockery of humanity and a wonderland of nature that once was, it will be evocative and provocative and above all else will create social awareness, because I am part of the echo that so many people are communicating to the world. We are fragments that make up a bigger picture and no matter how small, it really does make a huge difference and so we MUST do our part, because this current pandemic is really the least of our worries. What is a life worth living, if we have no place to live it on.
