I was born in Birmingham, England in 1971, and immigrated to South Africa in 1983, where I completed my tertiary education with distinctions in fine art. At that time there were not many opportunities to apply my studies in the commercial world, so I pursued a diploma in interior design and started off as a junior designer for a commercial design company in 1991. 3 years later I moved into hospitality and resort design as a senior designer. By 1996, I was approached by an Austrian based firm to relocate and establish an interior design department within in their existing structure. After winning our first European design competition in 1998, I set up my own design studio offering traditionally hand drawn artists impressions and presentation illustrations to other design companies and architects. I am currently living back in South Africa and have had work featured in Illustration Served, The Creators Project, Alive Architecture as well as Copic Markers artist of the month.
