I am a British born, Zimbabwean Artist currently in Mexico. I grew up in Harare and moved to England from Zimbabwe in search of new adventures at the age of nineteen. After a year of working in London I enrolled on a foundation course at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, and later went onto do a B.A. in Fine Art Sculpture at Chelsea College of Art and Design.
During my years at Chelsea I was interested in identity and colonialism. Interested in balance, identification, ownership and space, I created large scale interactive sculptures and was particularly interested in creating chairs in a variety of material.Specializing in wood and metal workshops I continued to make large interactive projects.
I have lived in a variety of different places since graduating in 2006, spending most of my time in Japan, I now live in Mexico DF. Travel and lack of studio space directly affects the medium I use. Using anything available and producing smaller two dimensional work, I continue to be interested in space and how something is identified within a space.
Playing with form and shape I have been 'dissecting' image and enjoying the idea of transformation. I see myself as a painter, a sculptor and a designer of sorts, at times exhibiting work in galleries.
Thailand and India 2007
My work involved documentation, mostly in photographic form.
My work involved ideas surrounding transition, state changes and forms of the in between, not quite one form or the other. I did a lot of 2D work in Japan. Attempting to do a drawing/sketch a day even if it were simply a doodle. This turned into one of the best projects I have ever done as it resulted in a large body of work and from that I have drawn on other ideas for work. One of the projects that came out of the drawing a day idea was in the form of design. Thinking in my small Japanese room how I could transform the space I was inhabiting.
: started a project that was based on ideas of mutation, illness /cancer, especially breast cancer. Again looking at transition, state changes and a space that inhabits that change.
