About

 
Do whatever brings you to life, then. Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart
— Liz Gilbert

Hello, and welcome to my page. I’ve been working as a freelance graphic designer since I left my job in the publishing industry in 2009.

I offer a range of graphic design services, including branding & logo design and corporate identity kits, marketing material (posters, flyers, digital artwork and the like) as well as invitations and graphics for social media; and I frequently collaborate with people and organisations representing a variety of industries including digital marketing agencies, hotels and guest houses, health & business coaches, finance and investment companies, poets, chefs, jewellery designers, tour guides and operators, musicians, life coaches, writers, business consultants, photographers and animal welfare organisations.

With fine art being my first love, I also enjoy the opportunity to participate in local art exhibitions from time to time, and I take on painting and illustration commissions. I have been included in exhibitions further afield, with the AGOG Gallery in Johannesburg and in Singapore with poet Julieta Timane, both in 2016. My work is predominantly inspired by the outdoors and by wildlife, and I strive to capture the expressive, atmospheric and often deeply emotional and personal elements of the subject matter that inspires me. 

I currently live on a farm on the Breede River in the Western Cape. I have an active profile on the international freelance platform Upwork, and I'm always on the lookout for new opportunities to collaborate with entrepreneurs and businesses I resonate with. You'll be able to find more of my work and some of my day to day escapades and inspiration on Instagram and facebook.
