I am a proudly South African mixed media artist with a portfolio of projects that spans different techniques and media.
My passion for art and continuous search to learn and improve is evident in the pieces I create. From bespoke pieces for discerning clients to creating an off- the-shelf range, my artwork can be found in homes, galleries and corporate offices across South Africa, Canada, Australia, Saudi Arabia and the Middle East.
Art is a form of individual expression, for collective appreciation, and an infinite range of personal interpretations. The attraction to express oneself in different ways is what drives me and what I hope can be felt in my work.
I find inspiration from nature and through my travels. It is the convergence of culture, people, stories, emotions, colours, textures and sense of place that goes into every piece.
Buying a piece of art is a very personal experience. Each individual finds different meaning and enjoyment when acquiring a piece of art. For commissioned pieces I take the time to understand the client and space the art piece will occupy, and the journey from conception to creation is therefore a shared one.
Quality is a cornerstone of everything I do. I seek out the best materials locally and from around the world. This obsession with quality and belief that everyone can be an artist has motivated me to share my knowledge through art lessons for young and old, teaching different techniques on different media. I also offer the hugely popular private”Art Parties” if a group of friends and family want to have it at home or private venue. Corporate also find the lessons to be enjoyable and relaxing which is a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of modern day business.
Using ‘Art for Good’ is also something dear to me and where possible I support social, humanitarian and educational causes.
Art comes from the heart and is captured for eternity on a canvas or medium. This love for art and expression is what motivates me.
