I’m a Cape Town based professional artist who specialises in fine art, portraiture and illustration. Aside from private portrait and fine art comissions I continue to work commercially as an illustrator for the publishing and advertising industries.

As a young man I did portraits on Leicester and Trafalgar Square's in London. I annually made my appearance on the Royal Mile during the Edinburgh International Art Festival, as well as participating in local art festivals such as the Grahamstown National Arts Festival. These were the formative years to my career as a professional artist.

I enjoy the malleable textures of charcoal's palette and find it can be almost fluid. After a trip to Chiang Mai in 2007 my methods with charcoal expanded to the use of a dry brush technique. I have always preferred the tactility of traditional mediums and a hands-on approach to fine arts.  I’m currently allowing myself more grace for error while experimenting with a combination of various mediums.
