The Book Print series was made by turning book covers into collagraphe plates. This gave me an opportunity to further explore the objectivity of a book and a book cover’s textures. Here the book cover becomes an image made up of marks, tones and textures that I found to be seldom appreciated. Either the inside or outside of the book would be printed. Showcasing the book cloth and title details. Or showing the internal structure of a hardcover book.

I graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine art in Cape Town in 2015 with my BAFA majoring in printmaking. The following year I graduated with my honors in Curatorship in 2016. Since then I have been working within the creative industry both in galleries and currently in a framing studio. Over the years I have also taken part of various printmaking, bookbinding and book restoration internships to further my practical knowledge. During my studies and in my current artist practice, books and artist-books have been one of the main sources of inspiration for my work. This is rooted in the fact that I am dyslexic and my relationship with books and words is slightly different to the average reader. I have always been fascinated by a book's objectivity, how they act as carriers of knowledge and by words as imagery rather than carriers of meaning; as I could often not access the codes within words. Through my work I continue to explore the those relationships in the form of printmaking and book arts; further developing and expanding those concepts of words, knowledge and books.
