My work is colourful and figurative mostly portraying female semi-nudes in a variety of playful stances. These images are applied in thick, monochrome colour on large surfaces, couched in prominent black outlines. Having had substantial success in South African and the international art market over the past decade, I have become a household name in the very best sense.
