My art practice is performative, contemplative, and transformative. My work is strongly influenced by my home country Lesotho, in Southern Africa, the diversity of people, and ideas of human resilience.
I consider myself an educator, facilitator, and visual artist. In my art practice, I focus on creating a space to contemplate, exist in, or a space to investigate. Materials I use include india ink, tea, coffee, dirt, and paint which make reference to the practice of making from what one has in my home culture.
