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.

Selby Time Line - Clay Relief

Milling & Mining

The Monks established mills along what is now known as Millgate. There they ground grain to make flour. Flour is still produced in the town today at the Rank Hovis plant on Barlby Road.
The Selby Coal Field was the last to be developed in the country. The plans were approved by 1976 the largest deep mine coal project ever undertaken in the world. At full production around 1993-94 the complex was producing 12 million tonnes of coal a year. The mines closed in 2004.

In all there are 12 sections to the Time Line featuring a total of 20 relief roundels depicting the town's history.
