Born in Pietermaritzburg, I attended both school and University there where I attained a Honors degree in Fine Art and post graduate diploma in Education. Knowing back then that teaching was not my passion and going overseas not an option I ventured into the job market with nothing but my creativity and a firm belief in myself. I completed my first mural job for the Nurses Dining room in Addington Hospital which snowballed into me opening my own creative paint and interior design business.

Many nightclubs and restaurants later I found myself contracting to Nando’s head office revamping and opening stores in and around Johannesburg, Botswana and Swaziland. In 2007 I reconnected with a friend whose father had given me my first tattoo back in 1989 and was offered a tattoo apprenticeship under the guidance of Cathy Jacobs; I was home.... 7 years later I ventured on my own and opened my own “appointment only” studio in Johannesburg. In 2016 I decided to relocate to Cape Town with the craving to get back into a studio so when the opportunity arose to join No Regrets I did not hesitate as it will afford me a place to apply my craft with dedicated passion and creativity.
