I grew up in South Africa, and studied at The College of Art & Design in Johannesburg, SA. I worked as an Art Director and Graphic Designer in advertising agencies there before doing the same in Washington D.C. and then Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where I live.
As I pursue my illustration career, with particular interest in children's book illustration, my goal is to capture the essence of childhood—uninhibited. Childhood is so short, and I am committed to doing my part to make it as rich and fabulous as possible. I accept commissions for commercial illustration, web site illustration and design and of course, children's books!
I designed the logo for the SCBWI—Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter.
My favorite children's book illustrators are Raymond Briggs, Brian Froud, Alan Lee, David Wiesner, Lisbeth Zwerger, Laurel Long, Simms Taback and Mary GrandPré. I find endless inspiration for my paintings in my young daughter Sophia and my two cats, Thelma and Louise.
