Lives and works in Pretoria, South Africa

After obtaining her BFA from Parsons School of Design, New York in 2010, Torr returned to South Africa to further expand on her artistic practice. Torr frequently participates in various exhibitions and is a lecturer in illustration at the 'Open Window'. Torr has to date had several solo exhibitions; the most recent 'Wayfinding' at David Krut Projects in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Torr’s work explores mental landscapes inhabited by characters pursuing a journey of sorts. Her images imply open-ended narratives that invite the viewer to participate and engage with them on a personal level.

Torr’s illustrations have been featured in local publications such as Essie Letterpress’ Artist’s Almanac, the Bat Butt Zine and iJusi. She has also produced prints in collaboration with Black River Studio as part of the 50ty/50ty Prints range, lithographs with The Artist's Press and monotypes with David Krut Projects. Torr frequently exhibits at 99 Loop in Cape Town, as well as NO END Contemporary in Johannesburg, South Africa.

She recently completed her MTech at the University of Johannesburg, South Africa.
