Which new trends or South African artists do you find inspiring at the moment?
I like the immediacy of preformative art, people that I have come into contact with include Ed Young, Athi-Patra Ruga, Andrew putter, Jared Ginsberg and Niklaas Zimmer. I like the use of alter egos that are created in the work of Mary Sibandes, Nandipha Mntambo and  Steven Cohen. I recently saw a painting of headless woman at The AVA by  Cinga Samson which I liked. I have enjoyed doing video projects on geographic spaces with Jade Gibson.

Which South African deceased artist do you most admire and why?

Billy Mandindi, I admired his artwork, he had a sense of humour.
Pierneef I like the quite structural elements in his paintings. I find his paintings peaceful.

Which exhibition that you have visited made the greatest impact on you and why?

It was an projection I saw at the Grahams town festival by Brent Meistre. The work showed a body lying flat on the ground almost remerging with the soil. The body moved across the surface of the South African landscape in this position. I sat and watched the projection in a darkened room and found it very moving.

Where do you get your inspiration for your work?

In the current body of work I am putting together I go for walks and certain objects catch my eye. For some reason they catch my eye and so I pick them up. I have a collection of these objects in my studio. I also page through magazines and tear out images that catch my eye.

Do you have any rituals or habits involving your art-making that you can tell us about?

I like to burn incense in the space before I start working. I like to listen to music while I work.

What do you like most about being an artist?

It gives you the freedom to wake up and decide what you want to do with the day. I like the feeling of creating ones own destiny, steering ones own ship.
How do you handle bad days when you experience artist's block?
I go swimming or jogging or walking in the mountain or just a walk around the city. There is always inspiration all around me.

What is your greatest achievement as an artist to date?

I graduated from UCT with Honours Level Fine Art Degree majoring in print making.

Do you feel that you want to make a difference to the world or in people's lives? If yes, how?

Yes I would like to make a difference to the world, I do this through workshops I run. I am preparing to do a workshop using drums and drawing. In my artwork I don’t set out to change anything I just communicate my own stumbling blocks along the path of life.

What are your plans for the coming year?

I am planning on starting up drawing and drumming workshops under the name Green Rhythm and I am working towards another exhibition.
