Mat has been painting for over 50 years and works in a wide range of subjects and mediums as he believes that there is so much to learn from each medium and there are advantages and disadvantages also in each medium. So he uses each medium to it's own advantage. He believes that a 'rut is just a shallow grave' and therefore he will not let himself get into a "Comfort Zone" by prodicing similar work and becomeing slick and commercial in his work. His objective is to make each piece better than the last and has been working professionally for over 30 years producing Wildlife, seascapes and Landscapes in Oils, Pastels, Watercolours and Mineral Sands.

Mat and his wife Naomi, who also paints, live in the beautiful Ixopo valley of "Cry, the Beloved Country" fame. "There is a road from Ixopo that leads into the hills where the grass grows to the height of one's knees and you look at the Umzimkhulu valley which is beautiful beyond the singing of it."
