When presented with a new public art project my primary concern is to create a ‘sense of place’. Everything made is site specific, defined by scale, function, budget restraints and the needs of the client. Keeping a ‘hands on’ approach is really important to me and to the overall quality of the work. I physically make the work myself, wherever possible; handling materials and working on site with building contractor to ‘set out’ and install everything from small mosaic groundworks to large-scale earthworks. The carvings, mosaics and bronze panels in the Hampshire Jubilee Sculpture, for example, were hand-made by myself.
Work shown here is a small selection of some of the many public art projects. I have tried to present a comprehensive overview, which suggests the multiple disciplines and contexts in which I work. I hope that you enjoy looking at these diverse works that span a period of over twenty years.
