I am a self taught artist and illustrator and worked for many years as a medical illustrator, first at Wits University, Johannesburg, and then at the University of Cape Town.

During the early 2000’s I started freelancing and now I work for numerous publishing houses doing mostly educational illustrations. For these types of illustrations I work mainly digitally in Photoshop and Illustrator.

When the publishing pressure is off and I have the time, I escape into all sorts of fantasy, whimsical drawings and paintings.

I’m available for commissions of all types so please contact me on my email valburgh@gmail.com or my cell phone 0727693214
