This piece was inspired after hiking in the Kalahari Desert in Southern Africa. It was so strange to see a tree growing in the middle of the desert like that. It struck me how truly resilient nature can be - surviving in the harshest climate. I was inspired to capture that resiliency as a reminder to myself that we too can thrive even when faced with difficult circumstances. Even when we feel lonely like that tree.

“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different". - Coco Chanel I strive for originality in all of my art, be it painting or printmaking. Originally from South Africa, I find the culture still heavily influences my artistic decisions. The vibrant hues of a Kalahari sunset, the clear azure tint of a bushveld sky or the eclectic mix of materials, just as unique as the people who dwell there. I then lived in New York for ten years before finding myself settling in Austin, Texas. Surrounded by such vibrant and creative communities it's no surprise then that my work is constantly shifting and evolving. I've been really inspired by working in mixed media and enjoy the process of seeing my idea come to life. I hope you find your irreplaceable piece! Thank you for viewing my portfolio.
