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.

The focal point is a free standing cast-iron sculpture, 2.4m in height. The piece features four figures from history - a Monk, a Miller, a Marine Engineer and a Miner - each carrying a symbol of their industry. Above them, a boat, its oars aloft resembling stylised trees, represents progress propelled by Nature. The sculpture conveys a positive message of renewal and regeneration, of Man's reliance on Nature and is intended to encourage the viewer to question their influence on the world around them.
