Janet Mbirimi lives in Cape Town with her two daughters and husband. And, grew up in the rural village Wedza (or Hwedza) in Zimbabwe. Wedza is in the province of Mashonaland East, located south of Harare.
Mbirimi works as a printer at the printmaking studio, Warren Editions. Her exposure and intense involvement in printmaking at the print studio led her to explore her own ‘language’ through etchings, woodcuts and monotypes. Her childhood geographic landscape is inextricably linked to her landscape of memories.
