I was introduced to Pewter by a close family friend and was immediately fascinated by the beauty and diversity of this art form which I have studied in great depth. Pewter is an ancient art form dating back to the 15th century. Due to its intrinsic value, Pewter is considered the 4th most valuable metal in common use, after platinum, gold and silver.




The ancient craft has regained its popularity due to the versatility of the metal which can be adapted to many diverse décor styles - from contemporary to classical, cottage to vintage.


I grew up and was educated in Durban. I have done many diverse art courses and have practiced various forms of arts and crafts for many years. I live in the seaside village of Melkbosstrand where I have my art studio and practice pewter art on a full time basis.


My inspiration is drawn from nature, walks on the beach, life and all it encompasses.






Pewter gifts may be personalised to suit any occasion. Examples are Weddings, 21st birthdays and Anniversaries where names and dates can be included with a design of your choice. Please contact me regarding any design or gift which I will customise to your special requirements.





My 'one of a kind' commissioned work can be seen in businesses and homes throughout South Africa as well as abroad.
