My BA Hons degree in Fine Art included a thesis on international ‘per cent for art’ policy and its influence on the commissioning of art for public spaces. A career in public art was a natural progression for me. People care about the aesthetics of their environment and have an interest in how shared spaces are developed. For this reason community involvement plays a role in most commissioned public art projects and this sometimes has a strong influence on both the process and the finished work. Public works of art are developed with consideration for all aspects of their physical, historical and social context whilst responding to the brief in hand. This requires a broad pallette of techniques, an innovative outlook and an ability to work flexibly within a range of diverse situations. Every project is unique.
