For me, developing art for the public realm is primarily about building series of relationships which are driven by creativity, but the process is also technical, educational and inspirational. A synthesis of process, form, architecture and environment are pivotal to a balanced outcome but it is also a listening exercise. It is critical for the end product to foster curiosity and interest but also to generate a sense of ownership. After all, a public artwork is funded, driven by and finally handed over to its residents. I believe that public art projects can inspire and enrich communities while enhancing environments. Temporary or ephemeral installations can be as impacting as more permanent structures and I enjoy the different processes and relationships that arise and inform both.
I am grateful for the trust that is bestowed upon me to develop artworks for clients of all scales and locations. This leap of faith in my skills to develop and nurture a brief from mind’s eye to sketch to reality provides the motivation for my practice.
