I am an artist, illustrator and graphic designer based in Durban, South Africa, working with acrylics, water colour, pen and ink, and digital art media (Photoshop and Illustrator).

I have a BA degree majoring in Fine-Art and Psychology, with an honours degree in Psychology (University of Natal, PMB), and have continued my education over the years with a number of part-time and short courses covering a range of subjects from design and web development through to children’s book illustration and art therapy.

I enjoy creating patterns, drawing animals, people, cityscapes and nature, and am currently obsessed with children’s book illustration as well as designing a fabric collection.

In my free time, you will usually find me at the beach, surfing or walking my dog.

Illustration services include:
Children’s book illustration
Surface pattern design
Custom illustration
Commissioned work
Art for your products
Art licensing/usage rights

Please get in touch if there is anything I can do for you.

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.
