His art journey officially began at Mmabatho high school where he took art as one of his subjects. He has continued creating art since then, even when he expressed his creativity through fashion he has continued to create artwork.
His artworks are influenced by a range of experiences from his fashion background. Which began in 2005 where he was mentored and tutored by Annah Getaneh and Eric Raisina. His eponymous label was launched in 2010 and has been showcased at the South African Fashion Week and internationally. His use of colour, texture, and experimenting with proportions are evidence of his fashion influence.
