Born and bred in Cape Town, I bravely conquered a BTech Degree in Graphic Design (CPUT), majoring in illustration, in 2003.
Post studies, a six-month stint at an advertising agency sent me wailing into the open arms of freelance illustration where I spent two years painting ferociously bright paintings, interspersed with drawing children's illustrations, which I thoroughly enjoyed. This did, however, leave me moderately impoverished, and so I was forced once more to don the cloak of 9 to 5. After a two year episode as a graphic designer/illustrator at a children's publisher, I moved to the DTP department of a comic publishing house. Here I was fortunate enough to learn from a host of talented illustrators and other creatives, and after four years decided once more to plunge into full-time freelancing.

While comfortable with traditional media of pencil, inks and acrylics, my work is predominantly digital, with Photoshop being my software of choice.

I enjoy working in a wide variety of styles and pride myself in producing the best possible work no matter the project.

My client list includes: Oxford University Press, National Geographic Kids, Pearson Education and Nasou Via Afrika.

I have also had the privilege of being part of the SCWBI exhibition of published South African illustrators.

I obtained my Graphic Design Diploma at East London Technical College and now live and work in Cape Town.

After freelancing in illustration for about ten years in England, I have built up a wide range of different styles which range from figurative drawing to a more stylised graphic interpretation

of a client's brief - and have produced illustration for Advertising, Editorial, Publishing and Design.
