Anton's painting interest started at school but sports, woman and cars got the best of him. One of his paintings at school won an International Award in Australia. He revisited his painting passion again from 2006 onwards, is self taught and does not specialise in a specific style. His paintings is a reflection of what he experience when encountering different views of life and he only paints what he has experienced. Painting has become more than a hobby and now boarders on an obsession. Maybe this is his way of catching up on lost time..or trying to tell his story through pictures rather than words.
Hobbies include photography, writing short stories, painting and doing extreme Overland trips. He was the chief organiser of the Overland Challenge 2005 that took ten teams from Beira in Mozambique to Swakopmund in Namibia via Malawi, Zambia and Botswana. He regularly Overland to remote places in Southern Africa such as the Origin of the Zambezi, Moremi, Chobe, Savuti, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Namibia. Hopes are high to explore the DRC shortly.
Anton grew up in Port Elizabeth where he finished his school career. He joining the then Post Office as a Technician and completed his National Diploma Cum Laude in Telecommunication Engineering. Studied B-Eng (Electronic Engineering) at Stellenbosch University and then did his MBA at Stellenbosch Business School.
After working for a few large corporates Anton started a Telecomms consulting practice and has been running it successfully since 1999. He performed contract work in South Africa, Botswana , Namibia, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Lybia and some Middle Eastern countries. He is married with two daughters and three dogs and stays in Pretoria.
