creative assistance/mentoring

@ the nanoCUBE studio

creative assistance for independent & professional artists

my experience

  • all work remains confidential

I act as a mentor and creative catalyst _ together we:

  • explore the artist's creative journey

  • focus on the artist's ideas

  • look at the artist's source material for imagery

  • suggest areas of research for the artist

  • consider the artist's technical artmaking skills and offer practical advice

  • encourage the artist find ways to integrate their ideas and their tangible artworks to create a resolved body of work​

  • help the artist to compose any artwriting needed to accompany their work

  • investigate creative pathways moving forwards

I also undertake online creative assistance via ZOOM 

between 2008 and 2012 I was a part-time lecturer in the Visual Arts Department at the University of South Africa (Unisa) where my responsibilities included:

  • working with the senior students

  • encouraging their research skills and critical thinking

  • coaching them in terms of integrating their ideas and their making processes.

in 2013 I established outoftheCUBE, an exhibiting platform to showcase the work of mid-career artists. Via outoftheCUBE I have:

  • assisted many artists creatively

  • interviewed artists

  • curated many exhibitions - online and in real-life 

in 2018 I joined The Printing Girls, a collective of South African female printmakers. Now on the admin team, I assist some members creatively and technically.
