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.
