Hi, and thank you for taking the time to visit my website!
I am an illustrator based in the sunny, beach and surf town of Durban, South Africa. I live on the border of a nature reserve so am entertained daily by the antics of the local monkeys and dassies (rock hydrax) who like to hang out in my garden, as well as the neighbour’s cat, and my trusty pooch who tries bravely to police them all! I am inspired by animal antics and their super cuteness (which is why I draw so many animals) and nature as a whole.
My work includes children’s book illustration, pattern design, custom illustration, editorial, and more. Typically, I work with pencil and paint (acrylic or watercolor) before finishing a piece digitally in Photoshop or Illustrator.
In my “other job” I am a freelancer working in graphic design and web development, which I have been doing for more than ten years. Coming from this background, I have a very professional approach to all my projects and value good communication.
If you are an agent or publisher or an individual or company with a project you think I would be a good fit for, please do get in touch.
(Yep, that’s me doodling in the sand.)
Exhibitions: As a practicing fine-artist, I 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 as one of the selected artists for the “Jabulisa 2010: The Art and Craft of KwaZulu-Natal” exhibition of up and coming artists which traveled a number of prominent galleries in the KZN province in 2010 and 2011. See full list of exhibitions.
