public art projects

Since 1994 I have used my conceptual, collaborative, and interpersonal expertise together with my painting, sculpture and design skills to bring artworks into the public domain.I have collaborated with council workers, design teams, architects and other artworkers to produce site-specific works which enhance public spaces 
Being involved in many projects from the concept and development stage through to the fabrication and installation of the artwork gives me a sense of achievement. Community consultation and involvement activities are an important way for me to enhance the community’s ownership and enjoyment of the artwork.
I have formed professional working relationships with fabricators over the years and have a fantastic team on which to call upon. I work with budget restrains and always within deadlines.
