I was born and 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  started off as a finished artist at IMA advertising agency in Cape Town, then an exhibition artist in the Museum Section of the Cape Provincial Administration where I became head of the technical section. Thereafter I was appointed Design & Advertising manager at KWV in Paarl.

Since 2000 I had my own Graphic Design Studio until I left Paarl in 2017.

I now live in Robertson.
