A Cape Town based professional artist specialising in fine art, portraiture and illustration.

Between private commissions and emergent personal projects, I continue to work commercially as an illustrator for the publishing, advertising, film and television industries as well as being commissioned by architects and developers for designs and perspective renders.

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

Being mostly self taught, for a long time my preferred medium has been charcoal. 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. That being said I look forward to my experiments in oil paint which I once thought of as the master’s medium and watercolour has much more to teach me.

I have always preferred the tactility of traditional mediums and a hands-on approach to illustration and the fine arts.
