As a mural wall artist i have been painting wall murals all over Cape Town for the past eight years . My specialty is a variety of children’s themed wall murals,
I studied in Johannesburg for three years to obtain my national diploma as a jewelry designer and worked as a commercial designer for five years before I started my own business. It was in the jewelry industry that I learnt computer design and the fundamentals of commercial design . It’s my background in jewelry design that helped me understand the concept of creating depth through shading and contrast, and the importance of light.
It was a wood factory called Wood Ways, that makes children’s doll houses that invited me to paint a mural on a doll house. That moved me in the direction of painting in a bigger scale.
This experience was the spring-board for what I do today.
Creatively I like versatility and a challenge. My mind is always looking forward to the next challenge.
What I probably love most about what I do is finishing a project. It is the moment I step back and see a new world before my eyes, you either in a meadow, under the sea or on an African safari. It’s able for a moment to transport you to another world.
I am of the believe my talent and ability is God-given, and that we all have talents and abilities that are designed and given for a Godly purpose.
