Welcome to my World

Hi there

Thanks for taking the time to come and find me in this corner of cyber space!

I am a mixed media artist which means that I create artworks from various media and love creating 3 dimensional items too.

I am particularly well known for creating Steampunk artworks, but I can create anything you want!

You can email me on if you would like me to create a bespoke project.

Here are some of my artworks:

My works in my Cape Town studio

This piece was painted for the Noordhoek Auction and purchased by David Gotlieb.

below you can see it in my garden

Plein air painting in my friends driveway.

Plein air painting in a friends garden, finished painting below

Part of my training over 30 years ago was etching, below you see my copper plates (reversed so you can read them) 

I just love the smell of printing ink
The etchings were painted with 3 strengths of coffee

I mounted them in card stock and packaged them to sell at Truth Coffee.
The original print and the final packaged print for sale
