Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, I completed a BA Fine Arts at Stellenbosch University in 2010, where I first explored the idea of print practice as an embodied thinking process in which the creative, studio experience is of equal importance to the final product. In 2013, I completed my Masters of Fine Arts degree at Michaelis Art School in Cape Town, with distinction. I am passionate about contemporary visual culture, art and design, literature, film and intersections between digital and print based media.
I currently live and work in London, UK as a master printer and Print Studio Coordinator at London Print Studio. My current research is in early photographic printing techniques and curatorial practice. I am particularly interested in dustgrain copperplate gravure (circa 1860) and its contemporary counterpart photopolymer for intaglio as well as other lens-based modes of production.
