All detail including nautical flags, weather conditions ,surrounding tugs, boats and buildings are correct

I was quite lucky to grow up in the harbour city of Durban along the sub tropical east coast
of Southern Africa sharing my out of school times between surfing/fishing/sailing the ocean
and enjoying farm life inland where my grandparents lived for many years in the stunningly
beautiful Ongeluks Neck Valley along side the Southern Drakensberg Mountains.
From my earliest memory I have always been charged by the fantastic energy of nature
and the interactions with the living things it drives. From early cave people creating their
art long before they could even talk and the discoverers of the whole planet voyaging
in great sailing ships they built from wood to the amazing space probes of today that
we send out exploring into the unknown black of space.
These are the subjects I humbly attempt to capture whenever I have a chance to make
pictures in the hope of sharing with others the natural elegance these can radiate into
your living spaces. I like to paint in different styles depending on the subjects.
I am a very enthusiastic photographer shooting from the hip most of the time.
Some of my originals are presently available for sale but for all the paintings and photographs
displayed as well as many others I have the rights to offer extremely accurate stabilized Giclée
prints on canvass. What’s great is that these, on request can be printed to ANY reasonable
size to suit your requirements. They can also be rolled up for safe and convenient posting.
I wish to add that I am personally so satisfied with the quality and proved lasting
ability of these that I keep prints of sold works in my own home.
PLEASE NOTE : Pricing of these prints will be given for the sizes stated, but
should you choose any other sizes the cost will be will be in proportion to the relative square area.
The prices of originals, where available will be given separately with the actual size and weights.
