Whew! My last post was months ago... I've been sidetracked over the past 2 months as I'm building up my design portfolio again. I've got an exhibition coming up in November so I really need to start putting pen to paper again to create tangible artwork - not the computer orientated stuff I've been doing. As for my waterlily painting, well, ahem... it's still in progress, I've done layers of washes and some pastel painting and it still is not worthy of a public viewing yet.

Work in Progress

At the moment I'm working on a mixed media painting of waterlilies. I've done a few acrylic washes for the background and I'm slowly working up the painting. It's proving to be a challenge as I've never painted water before - I'll start posting pics of my progress - stay tuned!!

My first commision - Sleepy Hippo

Black Rhino

Lion -pencil drawing

I haven't been keeping up to date lately, so I'll just post pics of some of the work I've done lately - these are two logos done for a site that promotes a love of reading for children's books. The second illustration was inspired by my son, who never tires of a good book and is always asking for just another chapter...

I'm an artist based in Johannesburg, South Africa. I grew up in an artistic family so my interest in art was always encouraged.

What I love about creating art, is the interaction between canvas and the medium - the individuality of a mark that can only be achieved by the human hand. I love working with color because of the unexpected interesting  juxtaposition of colors that you get from creating art.
