Artist's Statement, Commissions & Facebook

My work is largely influenced by my immediate surroundings, as well as current affairs (both locally and abroad). I also aim to highlight the role of 'unsung' heroes in our communities. These would include single mothers or aunts who work very hard to provide for and raise their families; migrant labourers who work in our mines and build our houses in the townships for merger pay; volunteering parents who establish street committees and community policing forums in an effort to fight crime in our communities and country.
