Born to an artistic family and hailing from South Africa, Fem grew up with performance in her blood! Making her theatre debut at 19 days old. The performance bug had bitten and the addiction to the stage spread.
Graduating from The National Theatre Ballet School, Fem traded her tutu, pointe-shoes & tights for jazz-hands, tap shoes & spot lights! Most recently Fem has just finished playing Liza Minnelli opposite Todd McKenney in The Boy From Oz for The Production Company.
Fem’s Musical Theatre journey began with: Little Shop of Horrors (Audrey). Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat (Narrator), Jesus Christ Superstar, Summer Holiday, Oklahoma, The Rocky Horror Show and Nunsense Jamboree. She then joined the international tour of Cats as Jennyanydots.
Crossing the seas to London, Fem has been treading the boards of West End theatres for many years. Hairspray Original West End cast (Tracy Turnblad, Shelly) She performed for Her Majesty The Queen at the Royal Variety Show!

Winner of 5 FNB Vita Theatre Awards and a Best Show Olivier Award, Fem is currently making a name for herself as a jazz vocalist and violinist in the Melbourne (Australia) Jazz scene, having shared the stage with many Australian, South African and international jazz luminaries at prestigious jazz venues.
She is part of many exciting music collaborations in Melbourne and plays a rather sexy electric violin, which is another string to her bow and a very bad pun!!!
