Background

I have been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. Actually my very first childhood memory is of painting a bright yellow sun while sitting outside besides a swimming pool. I grew up in a creative environment, in many beautiful parts of the world. I studied commercial art in Cape Town, South Africa, started my career as a junior art director in advertising and I went on to work as an art director in London. I then traveled the globe, got married, started a family and found myself dabbling in graphic design which led me to illustration.
Now based in Melbourne, Australia, I have had wonderful opportunities to work for a variety of clients as well as start my own creative business called Sweet William, selling my own artwork. I love what I do and hope to keep doing it for as long as I can.

Statement

I strongly believe that creativity brings encouragement, hope and joy and is to be embraced and shared in our everyday lives. I work in a variety of mediums, of which watercolor and ink are my favourites.
