I was lucky enough to grow up on a farm in the Baviaanskloof,  which is a remote mountain range in the Eastern Cape. Being the eldest sibling in our family I spent most of my time playing
outside and I believe this was where my creative streak started. I spend hours drawing with leftover charcoal from the previous night’s braai on our stoep, not to my parent’s amusement but so the artist was born.


I love working in various mediums including watercolour, charcoal, oil- and acrylic painting. My work varies from realistic animals to fun and quirky illustrations. Working in such contrasting styles is freeing and keeps my work fresh and out of the box!
