Welcome to my Studio Blog

Take a peek into my studio and my new life in South Africa: See what inspires me to create my paintings and what’s been happening in my studio and on my travels in this exciting country.

I love to travel, see new places and meet new people. I love to create bold colourful paintings, many of them based on my wonderful travels.

New painting idea, rough sketch

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all had a nice weekend. We have been having so much rain in Joburg.  Well, I have had this idea/image in my head for some time now for my next painting. Finally sat down today and sketched it out. Here is my very loose rough sketch of what I am planning to work on soon. Wishing you all a great day!

My Painting Image on An Album Cover

Hi Everyone, Thought I would share this with you. A Brazilian band from Sao Paolo "VITREAUX" contacted me a few weeks ago to use my painting "Colours of Venice" for their Album cover. They released their EP the other day and here is a link to their new EP.  They have a folky Brazil, alternative sound and I also think some Beatles influence as well. Wishing them lots of success with their new Album! Pic of their Album and my painting used.   Here is a Link to their EP.   http://monotunerecords.bandcamp.com/album/dois-por-dois-ep-2014


My name is in the credits down below.
