I was born deaf and attended the Trans Oranje School for the deaf in Pretoria where my talent for drawing was first noticed. I find the Cape landscape a constant source of inspiration.
Much of my work is an emotional response to the beauty that I see and feel around me and I enjoy interpreting the colors created as the light plays across the countryside.
I do not have a preference for a specific medium but I do love the way the palette knife gives the finished work a fresh feel.
My time is mostly occupied by commission work.
