BA (Fine Arts)
Artist, Illustrator and Graphic Designer
My qualifications and career experience are in fine art, graphic design, illustrations and photography.
I started my career in the printing industry and then became part of the creative team at Beeld Newspaper in Johannesburg, later becoming their Chief Graphic Design Artist.
I then got involved with freelance illustration and graphic design commissions for various international publishers and companies. This led me to start my own graphic design studio and production agency. My clients included Heinemann Publishers, Maskew Miller Longman, McGraw-Hill, Air Seychelles, Land Rover and Dow Chemicals.
More recently I was the Production Manager with a New Zealand publishing company for 11 years and I now have my own freelance business, White Cloud Creative. My services include graphic design solutions, illustrations, artwork and video conversions. The business also offers the services of a qualified copy editor and proofreader.
All my years of experience have taught me that each client or business has unique requirements. I treat each project, whether big or small, with the same enthusiasm, dedication and attention to detail.
