I grew up in the city of Bellville, South Africa.

Apparently I was a dreamer as a boy and drew a lot. My mother said that she knew that I will become an artist of some sort one day.

I did a National Diploma in Graphic Design and Fine Arts through the University of South Africa.

I was a finished artist at a Advertising Agency in Cape Town, a Museum artist in the Museum Section of the Cape Provincial Administration and Design & Advertising manager at KWV in Paarl.

Since 2000 I had my own Graphic Design Studio until I left Paarl in 2018.

I have since settled in the small town of Stanford, South Africa where I have my art studio across the street from where my grand parents use to live.
