Bounce Back Arts Director, Public Art Consultant & Dorset Resident

‘I set up Bounce Back to provide specialist services to cross-sector partners tasked with delivering beautiful public spaces. As a public art expert, I have enjoyed working exclusively in this field for the past 15 years and producing many amazing works of art for an audience of anyone!

During this time, I have brought to life 40 unique and site-specific projects, show-casing the work of talented, creative professionals from across a broad spectrum of art forms. In my view, never has beauty – built into our public places and spaces – been so important.

All of my work responds sensitively to the needs of a client and to those of a given site and its local community. Evolving naturally from working from my ten years in community development, Bounce Back’s projects are grounded in the aspirations of local people, in relation to ‘place’.

My past projects include delivery of permanent and temporary public artworks and landscaping schemes for a wide range of clients. I also fundraise; create commissioning plans and public art strategies for larger developments and; advise local authorities on policy development towards the implementation of high quality public realm design.’
