About The Instructor

I have been painting up a storm all over the Western Cape and involved in wonderful projects since 2003 – working with builders, architects, restaurants, wine farms, interior decorators and private home owners. I have worked with creative editors on numerous DIY articles published in magazines (Tuis, Home, Garden & Home, Woolworths Taste magazine). With 16 years painting experience, I have a wealth of knowledge with tips and tricks to share with you. I had the priviledge to meet & learn from inspirational creatives like Annie Sloan, Jonathan Mark Mendes, Perry Killington & our own Laetitia Viljoen. I am married to an art director/graphic designer & we are raising 2 wonderfully energetic boys.
