I’ve been surrounded by art throughout my life. My Zimbabwean father was an acclaimed sculptor who specialised in wildlife and also painted in oils.
I first started sculpting rhino at the age of five as well as assisting my father finishing his pieces. I honed my skills and sold my first collection of birds and turtles at the tender age of ten. I have since been completely absorbed by animals, the human figure and sculpture, the movement and anatomy of animals and the human form.
I work in many different types of media. My favourite stones are; Granite, for its multiple textures and finishing qualities, Marble for its classic association with sculptors, Bowenite, Potoro Leonardo, Jasper, Sodalite, Picture stone for its dazzling colours, Spring stone and Wonder stone for the contrasting texture between polished, unpolished and wax for bronze casting which allows me versatility in movement.
I have regular private collectors in USA, Germany, England, Australia, Switzerland and a growing number in South Africa. One of the highlights of my career so far are two life size tigers commissioned by the Mother of an international sports figure, as well as a collection for the National Zoo & Aquarium in Canberra , Australia. I have exhibited at the Safari Club International in Reno, Afridesia Gallery, Red Bank, New Jersey and an art promotional exhibition held by the Spanish ambassador at his Cape Town residence.
