Mankind is drawn to the heavens for the same reason we were once drawn into unknown lands and across the open sea. We choose to explore space because doing so improves our lives, and lifts our national spirit. So let us continue the journey.
GEORGE W. BUSH, speech at NASA Headquarters, January 14, 2004
When I started this painting, I never thought it would become a painting done on four canvases! It started with the first canvas, the right bottom one. It's an acrylic pour so I have got not much control over the flow of the paint. What a surprise awaited me! I saw a Bear, Ice Bear, birds and planets or maybe "eggs" representing "life" and "birth". I just knew then, it's going big!! What do you see? I used mixed media for the sphere that connects all four painting into one.

I grew up in Pretoria East. After school, I started my career as an Environmental Control Officer. Over the course of the next few years, I would work managing a Game Capture Team, and Managed a Game farm.
After working as an Industrial Engineering Draughtsman for 10 years, I chose a more creative path. I started with a variety of art mediums but have narrowed it down to painting, carving, macram[0xC3A9] and pewter.
Art for me is about telling a story. A blank canvas in front of an artist is both an adventure and a challenge. An adventure because you get to create something from scratch and a challenge because you don't always know how it's going to turn out. I guess it's this mystery that keeps me returning to the canvas.
I also work on commission, creating distinct pieces that will tell your story.
Please feel free to contact me to see how best I can serve your requirements.
I look forward to hearing from you
