My major objective is to produce a wide variety of collectible quality, fine art on leather works for the discerning admirer and as such should you wish to engage my services, my guarantee to you is that the work will reflect the highest degree of craftsmanship, expertise and attention to detail that is possible.
Corporate clients include S A Breweries, Old Mutual, PPC Cement, Process Automation, Shambala Lodge, AIRBUS, Shanduka and LTE Holdings. I have exhibited and sold a number of works to overseas visitors through Londolozi Private Game Lodge and at exhibitions in Montreal and Las Vegas.
I have been producing a variety of leather oriented projects for over thirty years but the production of Art on Leather works has become a special interest of mine.
What is Art on Leather? This art form incorporates the use of thick cowhide leather whereby the subject of the work is carved and modelled into the leather to provide a permanent three dimensional aspect to the subject – much like what one would see on a coin or medallion.
In more recent times I have produced works depicting well known sportsmen such as A B de Villiers the cricketer, Ernie Els the multiple golf major winner and member of the golf Hall of Fame and the presentation of the Rugby World Cup trophy to the South African captain of the Springboks in 1995 by President Mandela. The Gallery of my works is sub divided to reflect the Wildlife, President Mandela and Sports sections.
Creating a work of physical beauty that can hang on a wall and provide viewers with a deep sense of enjoyment is a special pleasure that is difficult to describe. It certainly ensures that I continue to stretch my technical and creative abilities on every work that I produce....

Every piece as presented in the Gallery is available in about four to eight weeks depending on the size selected, the complexity of the work and the availability of myself with regard to present commitments.
Custom pieces with your choice of subject will take approximately six to nine weeks to produce.
I will be pleased to work with you in conceptualising and designing an original work on carved leather for your home, office, game lodge or guest house according to your personal requirements.
You are welcome to contact me by e-mail or by telephone to discuss your ideas and we can plan the piece together on a personal level. A price will be quoted according to the size, subject/s and the complexity of the piece.
Once all the details of the work have been finalised a 60% deposit would be required to allow the project to commence.
What if you are not satisfied with the look of your piece?
Rest assured. I will send you a preview of the completed pictorial for you to approve prior to final payment. I am happy to make any amendments if any are required. Only when you are completely satisfied with the finished work, would final payment become due.
Shipping & Insurance:
The work is either shipped securely rolled in a tube or, in the case of framed pieces, in a secure shipping crate.
Shipments(out of South Africa) are normally made by FedEx. There is an approximate shipping cost of $150.00 for unframed pieces on each order outside of Southern Africa. Framed pieces would require an individual quotation.
Insurance is optional; the cost would be approximately 7.5% of the total value of the pictorial optional.
