Bio

She’s an abstract visual artist specialising in African inspired emotive prints, patterns, textiles, and art. Her inspiration is drawn from human emotion and expression using South African pattern making styles.  Her version of storytelling.

Her signature style is black and white however she loves colour pallets that reflect the natural environment around her. In most of the patterns, she makes use of lines, curves, and geometric shapes. She tends to favour the triangle as, to her, it represents partnership, power, and balance.

Ehlathini is Xhosa for forest. A peaceful but eventful place where everything is in sync. Each season presents changes that affect the elements differently however everything always works the way nature intended.
