I enjoy working on a large scale and this lends itself to Public Art.

Public Art commissions involves many things:

  • the commissioning body
  • the site
  • the community
  • the image itself

These influences often imbue the finished piece a life and presence far more dynamic than initially expected.

These are the most exciting of all projects.
