The challenge of creating public artworks holds great interest for me personally and professionally. I thrive on the challenges offered within public spaces, the communities that use them and the impact and interaction of the concept within that space. My interest in the health care environment links into this interest in public spaces; the physical passing through of public, the transient qualities that are inherent in such a space, and the engagement with service users and staff that use these environments, make for innovative and site specific projects.


Has completed a substantial number of Public commissions to date, which encompass a number of public and private commissions here in Ireland, Europe and the U.S.A Awarded “The Civic Award” for valuable contribution to the quality and appearance of the environment.
