I’m a passionate and meticulous artist with a background in both traditional and digital art.

After completing a Commercial Art Diploma in 2001 and a four-year Visual Arts Degree in 2004, I worked as a Concept Artist for Four Blind Mice. For the 2 years I worked there I focused on character and environment design for children’s educational games and guided the programmers in turning the concepts into reality. In 2007 and 2008 I was in Japan working as a freelance artist and English teacher. My current employment is with Clockwork Zoo where I have been a lead background artist on the Caillou for Cookie Jar Entertainment and a texture artist on Florrie's Dragons for Disney UK. I have worked as a freelance artist for over 10 years and have exhibited my work in various galleries around Kwa-Zulu Natal.
