Artist Statement

I produce a wide range of creative work. Some of which includes oil paintings, illustrations, animation and graphic design. I use modern technology when it comes to producing graphic design, illustration and animation however I still enjoy painting in the traditional way. I am just as comfortable using the paint brush as well as the computer. My paintings include portraits of people, various animals and some imaginary works. Most of my paintings are A1 in size. I am fascinated by lions and I have painted and sketched a few lions over the years. In addition to my natural ability to draw and paint, I have acquired professional qualifications to sharpen my artistic skills such as a National Diploma in Graphic Design, a B.A Honours Degree in Communication Media and a Postgraduate Certificate in Animation.
