I am a Zimbabwean-born African wildlife artist. African wild animals are my inspiration, and my material is gleaned from the wonderful game parks and sanctuaries in South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe, where we are still lucky enough to see African wildlife in its natural surroundings. I like to offer a different aspect of wildlife art and get as close as I can, in every way, to each animal I paint... sometimes an aspect is all that's needed to capture the soul of the subject.
I am also passionate about horses and equine art, and love taking on human portraiture whenever I have the chance. Commissions I have done include portraits of children, horses and other pets, and I have sold work in Southern Africa, Canada, the UK and USA.
The Technical Stuff...
My paintings are oil on canvas for the most part, although I am increasing my range of acrylic paintings. All original paintings are on stretched, deep-edged (4cm) canvas and sizes are shown for each painting.
While most of the work shown here has been sold, new work will continue to be added and prints are available of some sold pieces. Prices that are shown do not include shipping costs, but quotes can easily be done for these if required. Commissions are welcome and I would be happy to discuss your ideas with you.
Limited Edition prints are available to order. Printed on canvas or photographic paper, sizes can be quoted on to order. To find out more, please Contact Me.
Where to find me...
I am based in Hillcrest, KZN, South Africa, and appointments to view current work here are most welcome. For information on where I am exhibiting please have a look at my Exhibitions page, or you can Contact Me and I'll get back to you with details.
Whether you're looking for a portrait of a loved one, a beloved pet or a beautiful wildlife oil painting, I would love to hear from you. Comments, feedback and enquiries are always welcome!
