I am a full-time dad and a part-time portrait painter working in the London area. These pictures were all painted in my son's first year painted from photographs. These pictures are not for sale but are available for viewing.

Working from a photograph I cut between one and four stencils on thick paper then using different shades and colours of spray paint I create an image or multiple images with the illusion of depth. These pictures are commissions I have done, they are not for sale but some are available for viewing.

I have many ideas. Some of the ideas have turned into these sketches: but I have wandered away from the idea without further examination. This does not mean these sketches are second rate caste off ideas; many things could have happened to distract me from these ideas, for example: the birth of my son. I put these ideas here in case you decide to take them further. To turn them into something else.

These pictures were all painted between 1996 and 1999. In 1996 I left Cape Town for London and in 2000 my wife left me to go back to Cape Town. The neurotic erotica paintings are more about sex than the emotional landscapes, and all of the painting are about me. I have put my portfolio online to record their existence and, hopefully, to offer you a momentary distraction.
