Artist Statement

For me, creating has always been a companion, allowing me to make sense of seemingly uncontrolled situations through controlled mediums. My central protagonist is predominately "a faceless or universal female figure" and pays homage to my late mother and women's empowerment. My process, well it typically assumes form as collage, the assemblage of all the fragments of life.

Following an Emerging Artist nomination at the Peninsula Art School in 2006, I began to use art as a purpose driven awareness tool to stimulate civic dialogue and action on the issues of poverty and social mobility; my unique focus led me to Tanzania where Voice of Maasai indie music label and social impact brand was founded.
