I reflect a woman's experience of life.  I celebrate the power of narrative, making and the pivotal role of creativity in forming identity.   I am interested in the manner our bodies reflect the pain and joy of our lives and see the body as a representation of experience. 

I work with clay, plaster, metal and resins to create bodies that reflect a particular life experience.  I expect art to require effort and use the often laborious process of making to inform my work.  I use film to create narratives based on collaboratively crafted scripts that reflect, and undermine, the ideas, assumptions and symbolism that is associated with a woman's life.

I use philosophical theory, especially the works of Christine Battersby, to question how creativity, consciously or unconsciously, informs our identity as individuals and as groups.  I interpret theoretical ideas and images of the feminine, the feminist and the female to find links between creativity and identity. 

Recent exhibitions include 'Hidden Scars' and 'Sheroes' both of which have strong social meaning and support the art of women about women. 


I was born in Namasugali, Uganda.  I worked under contract to the Cape Town Opera and worked as a lobbyist within the ANC government before moving to the UK in 1999.  I worked behind a desk for a number of years and learnt a lot about money and corporate communications.  I travelled around the world giving training sessions to large groups of engineers about working together in a global market. I am an occasional singing teacher specialising in vocal production problems and performance technique.


I have an honours degree in music from Cape Town University specialising in operatic vocal performance.  My honours thesis looked at the cultural relevance of Mozart’s soubrette roles.  I was awarded a post graduate certificate in Psychotherapy from Regent’s College in London.  I also hold a City & Guilds qualification in teaching from Guildford College and a Certificate in Business Management from the Open University.
