I moved with my immediate family from Mpumalanga to the Western Cape in search of better prospects for my business. I found here, a better market for my craftwork that captures in wood, the images and the moods of the animals of Africa.







While my work is essentially realistic, I like to play with dominant features of some animals, kind of add some humour to the carving by representing them in an impressionistic way. This is particularly obvious in my largest-scale giraffes that will be outstanding features in any environment (that has enough headroom to house them). With an exaggerated vertical scale, they simply tower over all else and elevate the image of the African giraffe to new heights.









In the same way, I also enjoy producing hippos with their big round bodies a little overweight to play on this their main feature. It lust makes them more lovable.
