I absolutely love taking photos of small children, they are so innocent and carefree and an absolute pleasure to shoot. I am passionate about creating lasting images that you and your family and friends will treasure for generations to come. My goal as an artist is for you to display the photos as art pieces in your home.

I love natural light and on location photography, so I come to you, your place, beach, park, deserts.  In Dubai we are surrounded by deserts, parks and the beautiful beaches, the perfect locations for outdoor location photos of children and family portraits.



My work captures the essence of contemporary, gentle, modern,  which is timeless and very current. My creations become seamless extensions of the interior context they’re surrounded by.

Most fascinating is my exploration of texture, the rich surfaces on the canvasses creates an ambiguity of depth and floating form. Exploring new ideas and experimenting with creative thought fuels my natural talent and pure passion for painting and creating.

I have provided numerous commissioned artworks to clients in South Africa and Dubai, exhibiting in various interior design showrooms as well as the Lize Wendt Gallery based in Johannesburg.
