From Ivory Park - Tembisa, a township in the East Rand now residing & working in JHB. Currently a member of the Art Under the Sun.
As a self-taught artist, I learnt from Art Books from the Libraries and continuous practice. I am still learning and growing from strength to strength through each critique/compliment.
I use my art as a tool to communicate emotions of hope & happiness despite the surrounding circumstances.
My inspiration is derived from the everyday experiences of the ordinary South Africans specifically the people in the townships. Being it school uniformed children or just playful children in the dusty townships at times even the adults creating traffic in the streets as they run their daily errands.
My work is characterized by bright colours as I teach myself to see the brighter side of every situation "Where there is light, there is life & where there is life, there is inspiration and hope".
