Your greatest inspiration? I’m inspired by the women around me, the strong powerful ones who don’t compromise and who have to continuously assert themselves in our male dominated societies.
The biggest single influence on your way of thinking and creating? I’m reminded day after day that women still have to struggle for equality in the work place, the home, culturally and religiously. This is the driving force behind my work.
Your favorite piece to date? It changes, but at the moment it’s a car bonnet riveted with the words “Hope the pussy was worth it”. It seems rather apt in these ‘Trumpish' times.
How would you best describe yourself? Was bitter, now better.
Your favorite icon? I have many, but the icon for my most recent exhibition at SMAC is American artist Georgia O’Keeffe. My piece titled Lady Garden, is in fact an homage to her and her work.
An important life lesson? If you don’t set your expectations too high and you won’t be easily disappointed.
What are you working on next? I have an exhibition in New York towards the end of next year, so I’m beginning to plan a new ‘extravaganza’ for that.
What are you drawn to at the moment? Drag makeup and costuming. I think it's envy. There's a humour and joy in it. I wish I could tap into it but I'm not sure I could pull it off myself.
Three young South African or African artists you think we should be watching? Gareth Nyandoro, Buhlebezwe Siwani and Lady Skollie.
Which other galleries represent you? Richard Taittinger Gallery in New York, Aeroplastics in Belgium and Specta Gallery in Denmark.
