Welcome to my art site.

I love real paint and colour and pictures. I make what I want, and sell what is possible.
I also like to create digital imagery. The colours are so delectable; so bright.
Listed below are links to online catalogues from recent exhibitions and projects.

Most of the art works depicted are in private collections, or part of the permanent installation
at the Maritz Studio & Gallery, Darling, South Africa. 
Recent works may still be for sale.
Viewing at the gallery is by appointment only.
Should you wish to contact me,
