Text Artist - Calligrapher - Teacher

I am a contemporary text artist based in Cape Town. I have practised calligraphy for 20 years, studying Western, Eastern and African scripts.

Some of my special interests include experimental writing, mark-making, letters as symbols, quality of line, language as image and its role in contemporary and modern art.

My work has been exhibited locally and internationally and examples of remain in both public and private collections.
