As a South African living in the Netherlands, I am surrounded by new landscapes and cultures that constantly inspire me. Growing up in South Africa, I was surrounded by majestic mountains and breathtaking landscapes that instilled in me a deep love and appreciation for nature. I spent hours exploring the great outdoors and taking in the beauty of the world around me. This passion for nature eventually led me to pursue a career as an artist and illustrator, using my talents to capture the essence of the world's most beautiful landscapes.

After many years of honing my craft, I have become a sought-after South African mountain artist, known for my intricate pen illustrations of the country's most stunning landscapes. However, my talents extend far beyond just mountain landscapes, as I am also a skilled map illustrator and children's book illustrator. With a passion for graphic design, I seamlessly blend my love of nature with my technical skills to create stunning works of art.

I serve a wide range of clients, including the outdoor community and travel industry. I create custom, hand-drawn pen maps and mountain illustrations that are both beautiful and functional, providing a unique perspective on the world. I am also a talented children's book illustrator, bringing stories to life with my intricate, detailed pen illustrations. Whether working with published authors or hobbyists, I am dedicated to delighting both children and adults with illustrations that tell a story through detail and imagination.

Now residing in the Netherlands, I am still inspired by the beauty of the world around me. With a goal to extend my reach and bring the magic of my illustrations to children and adults around the world, I am determined to leave a lasting impact on the world through my art. Whether you're a nature lover, an outdoor enthusiast, or simply appreciate stunning works of art, my illustrations are sure to captivate and inspire.
