Elected RMS: 2016


I’m an artist based in Johannesburg (South Africa), but I grew up in a small Free State town where art was not part of the syllabus in high school and is therefore largely self-taught. Having drawn from a very early age, my passion lies with pencil work, ranging from miniatures to larger drawings. I love doing various subjects, from wildlife, human figure, portraits, landscape, architectural and botanical. I also enjoy working in watercolour and oils. My pencil work is featured in two American publications, and I have received numerous awards both locally and internationally.
