Core business

My core business is illustration in all media (except digital) for the advertising industry as well as fine art commissions. I initially started as a designer in the UK in packaging and POS (point of sale) and continued to work in various agencies and studios when I moved to South Africa. I eventually settled in Cape Town and decided to illustrate full time on a free lance basis.


Inspired by

Michelangelo, John Singer Sargent, Frank Frazetta, Gil Elvgren, Berni Wrightson, Brad Holland and my mentors – Ryno Swart and the late Trevor Flight.
