I have lived the sign industry for over 40 years now, it is & has always been my passion.
The essential progression of computer & integral printing technologies have enabled me to progress with the industry whilst still keeping in touch with the oldest techniques & traditions.
Over the years, I have been fortunate to work with some of the best sign makers in many different countries & environments, developing the use of a vast range of materials & techniques.
Being on the design side of the industry I have always had a close relationship with the sales team, meeting clients, sourcing the correct materials for the project, estimating & costing whole projects from, for example, a complete shopping mall complex or sports stadium to a single high street store.
Having recently returned from Britain where I spent the last 4 years practising the sign written art of Canal Narrowboat painting & lettering. I have now returned home to South Africa and am living in Hogsback in the Amathola Mountains of the Eastern Cape.
As well as still practising traditional signwriting I am involved in the designing and manufacture of bespoke furniture & wooden products as well as framing pictures for the local artist community.
