I am very happy to accept commissions from collectors that specifically require my approach and style. 

Most common commissions are to paint for farming estates, in particular wine farms in the cape, while portraiture includes bronze. Enquire here


Comprising small full-length figures that reflect gestural character, as well as life-size busts, these white sculptures are rendered in various media from candle wax to white cement. Much like painting outdoors offers endless logistical challenges, this project is also calling on new demands such as working outdoors and in living spaces.


Niël has been commissioned to create the winning trophies for leading mountain bike events, including the ABSA Cape Epic, The Cape Pioneer Trek, and the Tankwa Trek stage races.

Metals and foraged earth have been forged and fired in improvised ways to reflect the inner reserves demanded by these extreme experiences.
