Johannesburg, South Africa

Hi! I'm a South African designer, artist and hobby photographer living in Johannesburg.

I'm experienced with creating through the line advertising media; design, prepress and printing in advertising, publishing and packaging; html, css, javascript, hosting and Wordpress for websites; and creating personal artworks. My expertise are mostly self-taught acquired through years of experience; I’m self-motivating, forward-thinking and creative. I create my own distinctive aesthetic mark using Adobe Creative Cloud, a Wacom tablet and an Apple iMac.

My skills include concept, design, prepress and printing of retail and collateral media; including branding, corporate identities, in-store point of sale, large format printing and die cutting; colour and layout theory and psychology, an eye for mathematical composition and visual narratives, desktop publishing, artworking, photography, photo manipulation, illustration, digital painting, 3D modelling and website coding; Along with solving prepress, printing and IT technical issues.

My personal artworks have received awards and been showcased worldwide in different printed, digital and broadcasting media; This includes magazine features, television series and a gallery exhibition. These artworks redefine reality and stretch the limits of the imagination; Capturing the surreal beauty of strange objects, places and phrases in dream-like emotive images, conveying statements about literal interpretations and the conundrum of the human predicament.

I'm an enthusiast of all things creative and have a keen interest in computing, music, history, alternate lifestyles, liberal views, nature, science, technology and the cosmos. I enjoy whiling away my free time with reading, podcasts, documentaries, science fiction television series, travelling and volunteering my time to the Zooniverse projects.
