artist and printmaker
I've been involved in different aspects of the South African printmaking scene for 25 years, as a contract printer, printmaking workshop facilitator, contract lecturer, art consultant specialising in prints, an artist/printmaker ... can't get the ink off my fingers ... and I'm one of the co-organisers of FAP19.
For my sins, I'm the co-founder and director of the online arts platform outoftheCUBE and quite obsessively research printers and printmaking
I have an MA in Fine Arts from Stellenbosch University.
artist's statement and process
I'm fascinated by the ebb and flow of human relationships, and this has informed my work since the mid-2000s. This has extended into various explorations around eros, mourning, memory, nostalgia, and currently reconciliations.
I work exclusively in print, usually water-based screenprint and watercolour monotype or combinations of the two. To use low-toxicity printmaking methods is an important aspect of my practice. More recently I have joined the collective printmaking group, The Printing Girls (#printlikeagirl) and this has revived my interest in relief printing.
