  • Biography
    First of all I want to say thank you to all the people investing in my artwork and my future. I am an artist that likes to experiment with all types of medium and crate unusual items that are mesmerising to look at and captures the imagination. My inspiration comes from life, love, nature, politics, news, and everything that surrounds me in life. Although my preferred medium is paper I also enjoy playing with paint creating paintings with bright colours and texture. I am living and working in beautiful South Africa. I am a quiet person living with ADD and that enjoys the company of myself. My work expresses things that are very obvious and recognizable to everyone but with a twist. The photographs in some of my work may not be pretty or even correct but the point of my work is to get a message across that is strong and undeniable sometimes. 

    In my abstract paintings I explore layering of colours that are hidden behind the frame almost like a hidden painting within a painting sheepishly asking to be noticed, I also use heavy textured coloured paint in specific areas of the paintings protruding out almost shouting to be noticed, these textured shapes in my mind can represent everything I can imagine.
