Professional Experience and Interests
I launched my solo career as an artist during 1996 and my works were popular from the onset amongst art galleries and art dealers alike nationally as well as internationally. I paint a wide variety of topics, including but not limited to, landscapes, figures, boat scenes and flower studies. The majority of my work is done in a unique acrylic based technique.
Vibrant use of colour is the most important ingredient in my paintings but plasticity of the subject is also present. Jointly they create an unexpected harmony transforming a blank canvas into a visual feast .My imagination is a filter between nature and canvas
I have a keen interest and passion to express my creativity through photography as well.
5 years ago I engaged the world of professional photography and developed an exclusive and private home studio specializing in unique portrait works that includes maternity, baby ,family, fashion portfolios and the occasional wedding. I also try not to limit myself to only studio photography, but also expand to nature, photo journalism, interiors, landscape photography etc.
I’m 5 star photographer at the Centurion Camera Club, Pretoria through which I received numerous prestigious awards to date. ( Including 65 cold awards, several certificates of merits and 19 PSSA salon acceptances)
My works have been published in the International Photography Laureates Anthology consisting of the best pictures of 2008.
I continually strive to embark on adventurous and unique creative portfolios and compilations and pursue my objectives in an individualistic manner so as to compliment my artwork and sentiments towards an artistic reality.
Some of my latest artwork is a combination of my photography,digital art, lithography, painting and mix media.
Observe and explore the ingredient of each composition with enthusiasm and passion and discover my world
