I believe public art schemes are most successful when they relate closely to their users and environment.

My preferred approach is an examination, through a contemporary prism, of the traditions, culture, history and future use of the location. I regard history as important. I believe it moulds our identity, giving reality and substance to our communities through a shared past. It is the glue that binds us together, and gives us our benchmarks in our relationships. Every city, town and village has its own unique history, which in turn gives it its particular character. Through my artwork I seek to discover that uniqueness and bring it to life in a modern way.

The majority of my commissions have been for community organisations, local authorities, schools, universities and hospitals. I regard each site as unique, each demanding an individual solution using the most appropriate techniques and materials for the project in hand.
