The animals I paint are taken almost exclusively drawn directly from wildlife photography books. Like many South Africans I have personally never experienced wildlife in natural environments. Because of the popularity of eco-tourism African wildlife has become an exclusive holiday experience. The world we inhabit has become more manipulated and market orientated and to me it seems that natural environments have become more of an exception than a rule. For this reason I have chosen to separate the subjects in some way from their natural environment making them more of a decorative element than a true representation of natural law. In some works the boldness of the stylisaton makes the animal almost an icon inhabiting a new urban environment.”
"I believe that making art is a compulsive act of self expression that can only be realized through the collaborative act of creating and experiencing. Creating art for me is about constantly reflecting on my place in the reality. Using art to express a emotional and intellectual and tactile value, discovering how to distill and interpret my interaction with what surrounds me and documenting that personal relationship.
His work is in many private collections in Africa, Europe, America and the U.K. and Asia
