About Me

I am a South-African-born artist, now living on the sunny Gold Coast of Australia. As a self-taught artist, I began painting after I was generously given a wooden box filled with an assortment of oil paints and brushes. From that moment onwards, I had discovered my passion and I have been committed to creating captivating artworks that are created from my personal interests and influences.

Fascinated by the beauty of femininity, my artworks often feature lady-like figures, elegant themes, and soft color palettes. You would notice that most of my artworks are figurative work and portraits, which stems from my intrigue of capturing candid moments and expressions. Another influence for my artwork has been the beautiful Gold Coast and my love for the ocean, as many of my paintings have relaxed, coastal themes. Art is a celebration of life and people, and the beauty therein.
