chen ping, Abandoned Girl (museum collection),
2008, oil on canvas, 180 x 150 cm

A single tear rolled down her cheek, followed by a dozen more. Smudging her mascara, tears filled with coiling black smoke, leaving a trail of charcoal down her face.

I am a strategic planner, neurotic wordsmith and art lover with a penchant for anything digital- my forte being digital marketing. I love that this field encompasses both creativity as well as a thorough understanding of data analytics- it is a true social science that bases company revenue on modeling client behavior in the online space, looking at means to optimize conversion and effectively modifying behavior. I am a perpetual executive student, and am currently in the midst of completing my MBA at the top rated business university in Africa (GIBS). My academic interests include: Increasing social mobility in emerging markets through technology. The ekphrasic relationship between abstract expressionist art and poetry. French feminist theory and its applications for women working in male gendered roles.
