ABOUT ME

Holding up a tree. In the background is Witels Peak, the big mama of the Tsitsikamma mountain range.

I am a versatile artist and art tutor who does fine art, book illustration, cartoons, and portraits.  My mediums are acrylics, inks, oils, pen, pencil, charcoal, and pastels. I love sculpting in clay, and meet deadly deadlines as in illustrator.  My trademark is variety.

I have a commercial art diploma and took classes in painting (watercolours and acrylics) and commercial art, but invaluable constructive feedback from fellow-artists, copying of the works of the Old Masters, lots of portrait work, constant experimenting, and teaching art constitute the bigger part of my growth and learning as an artist.

I live in the Tsitsikamma, the southern coastal region of South Africa, flanked by the Tsitsikamma mountain range, which sometimes features in my art. I grew up here and spent my childhood gazing up at Witels Peak, the highest mountain in the range, featured in the picture of me above and in my Tsitsi Cat series below:
