André was born in 1956 in the rural town of Duiwelskloof in the then Northern Transvaal. He grew up in Pretoria and matriculated in 1974 with fine arts as one of his majors. He started painting in oils in 1978 as a hobby and after a couple of successful exhibitions he moved to the Klaserie Game Reserve and started painting full time in 1986. He is well-known for his realistic portrayal of the African Bushveld and its wildlife. He has done many commissions and organizations like Anglo American Corp; The University of Pretoria, the Embassy of the USA, Potchefstroom Universiteit vir C.H.O and Standard Bank, to name but a few, deemed his work an investment.

André's motto is: "Buy my work because you love it. If it becomes worth megabucks someday, your heirs might be happy, because you will never want to part with it."
