About me

I have over 20 years of experience and success in the creation of high quality artwork designed to withstand the rigours of the public space. Works have been in 3 dimensions, as well as ground and wall based relief. Over the years I have made new works for town centres, community gardens, public recreation grounds, local authority buildings, housing association developments as well as libraries, hospitals and health centres.

Plick

Plick! Every few minutes that sound resonates around the studio as another drop of water falls into the bucket under the leak in the roof.

My brief for the project was to develop a piece inspired by the phrase,'April Showers Bring May Flowers'... I've been batting around ideas for the past few weeks and finally have come up with a solution. Keep it simple.

The photos show my maquette, a half size model of the final design. I intend to cast the piece in fibre glass. It will have a highly polished surface finished with a colour shifting automotive paint.

The piece is to be sited indoors in a waiting room in the ICC. It's been a struggle for me to get my head round siting something indoors, with all the restrictions 4 walls can create. I am not used to carpets!! I think that I may make the piece look as though it hovers... though this has not been resolved yet.

I will also be making a wall based piece and will post images in due course.
