Sculpture creates places.
Public art is increasingly important for defining the individuality of an area and promoting local pride
Public and Private Art should never be considered an after thought, or part of a planning requirement. Instead there needs to be a realization of what the addition of a well planned and appropriate installation can bring to a development, public realm or your own home. Beauty comes in all forms and the most loved pieces of art are those which have been created individually. Art that is personal and which locals and tourists take to their hearts and come back to visit time and time again.
NEW FOR 2020
Measures around the national health emergency have obviously impacted on my plans for 2020. However I remain hopeful of installing two exciting sculptures this year. Shadows is a memorial fashioned from Corten Steel. The new memorial will be installed in Pennington Wharf, Leigh, Lancashire and it commemorates the nineteen miners who tragically lost their lives in 1932. Images to follow. Also to be installed at the new Shot Tower development in Chester is a bronze sculpture entitled Mr Walker. A life size bronze piece, Mr Walker is a celebration of an industry spanning over 150 years.
I would like to wish all visitors to my site a safe and healthy 2020.
