Consultation and series of commissions across new country park 'Riverdown Park' in Laverstock nr Salisbury. Inspired by the area's rich history as a centre for Medieval tile making and the local flora and fauna of the park. I created 6x stone way marker posts and 3x large scale paving stones designed to enable rubbings of the artwork.
My artworks were designed to encourage interaction, learning and celebration of the environment. All the elements have been designed to be highly tactile, allowing those with visual impairments to discover the local flora and fauna. In addition, rubbings can be taking to allow visitors to extend their visit to the park, encourage play and creativity, and allow them to take away the artworks. I want to create encounters with art in public spaces which surprise and delight.
I work with international fabricators to realise my designs and here worked with stone specialist Scribble Stone. I am the sole artist on all of my projects.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
