She studied at the Heatherley School of Art and the Central School of Art in London in the early 1930s. It was there that she met Gregoire Boonzaier and Terence McCaw, and together with Lippy Lipshitz, Walter Battiss, Alexis Preller and herself, they founded the group Die Nuwe in 1938 in Cape Town. She also spent time in Zanzibar from 1947 to 1949, where she produced many sketches and portraits. She is known for her still lifes.
