I am an artist specializing in pastel, watercolor, and acrylic paintings of portraits, landscapes, wildlife, and pets. I have lived by the coast my whole life and paint en plein air as often as possible.

I was born July 1st 1975 in Discovery, Transvaal, South Africa. My family moved to the US and I studied art at Savannah College of Art & Design(Savannah, GA), UNCW(Wilmington, NC).

At an early age I wanted to be a comic book illustrator. As I progressed in my art I decided to pursue digital art to work in the 3d animation field. To pay for college I did graphic design. After college I ran an advertising firm. A life changing epiphany occurred when I realized it was the creative side of ad design that I enjoyed and not the rest of the career. I became a full-time artist and never looked back.

I have taught art to all levels and may begin offering workshops again in the future. For now I am focusing on my own paintings and exhibitions as well as opportunities to contribute to local charities.
