My Portfolio: I am a sculptor and artist. I studied Fine Art at Mandela Metropolitan University. I worked as a fettler and an artisan at a bronze foundry for a couple of years.
I was a teacher of sculpture at Somerset College for four and a half years and also lectured space and volume at Stellenbosch University for a short period. I did teach sculpture privately. I have a public studio/gallery in Stellenbosch South Africa. I do private and corporate commissions on sculptural portraiture, animal and bird sculptures. Sculptures are made in wax, plasticine or plaster before I have them cast in bronze.
I am currently represented by the George Thornton Art Gallery in the UK, Nottingham, where I have sculptures on Exhibition.
Locally in South Africa I have a few bronze sculptures at the Posthouse Gallery as well as an extensive collection of bronze sculptures at my Studio Gallery, 44 Church Street Stellenbosch South Africa.
I do illustrative pen and ink drawings and the occasional lithograph.

Hi, I hope you are doing very well! I came to your gallery in November (middle aged German/English lady with elderly mum in a wheel chair) and I admired your bronzes. I could not buy one at the time but I was particularly fascinated by the bird on a very long branch in your shop front and I would love to put a link to it (I believe it was an owl) on my facebook page for my friends to see it – and your other bronzes of course. I can’t find an image of that particular bronze on your website. Would you be able to upload a photo of it and would you let me put a link to your studio on my facebook page?
Best wishes
