She currently teaches art part time at South Peninsula High School and is in collaboration with Indoni Dance Academy and The Astar Project in a youth development interdisciplinary art programme.

Her work as an artist focuses on intimacy, love and healing. She is drawn to using watery materials that enable her to express themes of love, loss, intimacy and sexuality.
