Commissions

I undertake commissions for public and private spaces.

I enjoy the collaborative process and find that the creative journey from concept through design to the completed work can be an interesting and rewarding one for clients as well. I believe that enhanced visual environments have a positive impact on our general sense of wellbeing and have, over the years, enjoyed working in a range of health care, social care and educational environments.

I work solo in the studio, but I am able to draw on an experienced team of designers, fabricators and installers to realise larger projects.

If you have a project coming up that you would like to discuss, please get in touch.
