Biography

My strength is demonstrated by the range of previous experience in the areas of public art, design, construction and fabrication. I have worked successfully with consultants, architects, landscape architects and clients including City Councils, Schools, Community Groups and individuals. I have demonstrated an ability to manage large scale projects produced and installed on time and have enjoyed the interdisciplinary nature of working with specialists in other fields. Depending on the size of a project I can draw upon skilled employees from Concreto and specialist consultants if needed. Fabrication techniques incorporating computer cutting, carving and mould making, epoxy inlays, photo etching, digital glass and metal printing, sandblasting, concrete retarding, acid etching and polishing enable a high degree of control in both surface texture and pattern.

Artist Statement

I am a public artist with 20 years experience working in this field. My art practice concerns are investigations into materiality and light, developing spatial and formal responses that are site specific. I aim to create conceptually driven artworks that respond to the social and private landscape integrating utility, architecture and design.
