Born and raised in South Africa, I had a passion for both motorcycles and art from an early age. I attended art school in Natal and soon found myself contracting to some of the top marketing firms in the world. Some 25 years later and a half a world away, I've since relocated to Central Alberta and am creating unique illustrations and caricatures for individuals and companies.
I use pencil for my caricatures when I'm at an event - typically head and shoulders. For special occasions such as anniversaries and birthdays or corporate gifts, I'll use ink and if requested, I'll apply colour digitally. When I find the time, I like to dabble in pastels and acrylics.
Life and my surroundings inspire me and the fact that I can make a good honest living doing something that I enjoy. Seeing the surprise on someone's face that just received one of my drawings is the greatest reward.
A humorous caricature completed live in a few minutes or full colour commissions within a couple of weeks.
You name the event - I can be there! Weddings, Birthday, Fundraising, Grand Openings, Dinner Parties, Corporate parties, and much more. Give your guests a unique souvenir of your special occasion. I can produce a sketch in a few minutes - typically 10 to 12 drawings per hour. Your guests will be entertained as I sketch them and present them with a carefully wrapped keepsake. Contact me to book your special date. No charge for travel within 50kms of Innisfail.
A great gift for that special person or for yourself. Include your favorite hobby, pet, motorcycle, car or what have you, and I can create a unique work of art. Choose from a graphite sketch, pastel or full colour digital in caricature or portrait style.
Pet memorials - invitations - Christmas cards - T-shirts - puzzles. Anything I create can be digitized for you to reproduce.
Book, newspaper, and magazine illustrations, logos, cartoons, technical components, marketing graphics.

A unique way of getting your message out to your clients or guests. Restaurants, lounges, pubs, and special events.
