I like to combine landscapes and still-lives, with the main themes of Africa, the magical and the fantastic.

Symbolism plays an important part in my paintings. There are recurring themes and images that hint at certain underlying values but that are left to the interpretation of the viewer.

My work is represented in the Absa Bank and GTS corporate collections and in private collections in Belgium, England, France, Holland, Germany, South Africa and the U.S.A.
