About

Hi there, and thank you for taking the time to visit my website!

I am an illustrator based in the sunny, beach city of Durban, South Africa. I do children’s book illustration, pattern design, custom illustration, and more. I am also a freelance graphic designer and web developer (more on that here).

As a long-time freelancer, I have plenty of experience with deadlines. I value good communication, am adept at dealing with client feedback and making adjustments to my pieces, and have worked with numerous international clients.

I enjoy creating patterns, drawing animals, people, cityscapes and nature, and mostly, telling stories with my drawings. Having illustrated a number of self-published children’s books for other people/companies, I am currently delving into the depths of authoring a picture book of my own.

If you have a project you think I may be a good fit for please do get in touch.

Exhibitions:
As a practicing artist, I have exhibited in a number of galleries within South Africa, most notably with: a solo exhibition at artSPACE durban in 2008, a group exhibition at the KZNSA gallery in 2009, and being chosen as one of the artists for the “Jabulisa 2010: The Art and Craft of KwaZulu-Natal” exhibition – which showed at a number of prominent galleries in the KZN province in 2010 and 2011.
