Commissions

My commissions and residencies balance the experience of solo studio work for me.  I value bringing art and its spirit directly into the dailyness of living. 

I have worked in the UK and widely abroad.  My diverse commissions have the common theme that they tell aspects of the human story – clear, strong or subtle.

I have been artist in residence for the National Trust, the Tower of London, the Battersea Arts Centre, the Puppet Centre, and many other venues.

The Courtauld Institute, the Science Museum, the National Maritime Museum, the Arnolfini Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum and others have all commissioned original work, often several years in succession.

 

Commissioned projects include

  • For the Institute for Contemporary Art and Battersea Arts Centre, a paper sculpture set and series of paintings for “I Place my Stones” performed by CiCi Blumstein with poet Leah Thorne.
  • For the Tower of London - site of England’s first zoo, an animated installation.
  • For the Royal Horticultural Society, Wisley Library, “The Dandelion Clock,” an artist’s book.
