I was born in Botshabelo east of Bloemfontein in Free State in 1989, and grew up at Vriscgewaagt south of Mafikeng in North West from 1990 till 2002. I moved back to Botshabelo in 2003 and matriculated in Popano High School in 2006.

Art and travelling have been my favourite and most fascinatingthings to ever do. Through my arts I had an interest to portray my daily experiences and what I see around me where I live and travel to.

I graduated in Art and Design specialising in Jewellery Manufacturing and Design in 2015 at Motheo TVET College Bloemfontein main campus, then worked as an intern as jewellery manufacturer and designer at Ashok Jewellers in Durban KZN. In 2016 I was transferred to Pneuma Jewellers in Midrand in Gauteng to intern and then in 2018 I passed my trade test to be a qualified goldsmith. From 2019 to 2020 I completed a one-year programme learning 3D modelling and CAD Design at Design@50 in Germiston in Gauteng.

I have never stopped doing drawings, paintings and designing which is the major reason I have a variety of qualifications now. I sold some of my artworks through social media, mostly Facebook, which in 2016 leaded my artworks to be picked up by Pic Me Art gallery which was in Bell Air shopping complex in Randburg in Gauteng, I was given an opportunity for for two years display and sell my work with them.
