About Me

For the past 16 years I have worked exclusively in the delivery of high quality, aesthetically-pleasing, place-making interventions as part of wider regeneration initiatives.

During this time, ‘Bounce Back Arts’, became the umbrella title for my growing portfolio of projects – echoing the inspiring, positive and energising nature of the work I deliver.

These place-shaping projects reflect c. £3 million investment in public art, which I have fund-raised from a wide variety of cross-sector sources. 

Quality is at the core of all my projects, as is a continued focus on the celebration of local heritage through contemporary interventions. The meaningful involvement of local communities – in helping to shape their environments – is crucial to success and I strive to ensure that everything is achieved in partnership with key stakeholders so that completed work speaks to an ‘audience of anyone’, providing a thought-provoking, cultural experience.

I offer a comprehensive range of professional services, which can be individually tailored according to a client’s needs.

These include:

  • Fundraising
  • Creative solutions & collaborations
  • Public art advocacy and training
  • Project development
  • Community engagement and well-being projects
  • Commemorative and celebratory artworks
  • Artistic enhancement of engineering projects
  • Creative workshops in schools
  • Cross-sector partnership-building
  • Artists’ brief-writing
  • Artists’ recruitment and commissioning
  • Strategic development and advice
  • Policy development
  • Navigation of local authority services
  • Specialist consultancy services
  • Heritage research and interpretation
  • Project management and evaluation
  • Communications and PR
  • Event planning and delivery

With a good working knowledge of everything needed to ensure a fantastic, urban regeneration project my specialisms are in the implementation of permanent, built interventions of a creative nature delivered in partnership with others. I am based in Dorset and my services are available nationally.
