I undertake public commissions throughout the UK and overseas.  Emphasis is on creating visually engaging artwork that is accessible to a wide audience and is site specific in terms of context and physical location.

I also place emphasis on community involvement in public art projects. This is achieved through detailed consultation with all stakeholders and by providing workshops for community groups. I have over 20 years of experience of providing workshops for all ages and for a variety of groups from medical staff, community groups to school children.

Specially designated websites are created for each project to fully document the process and to allow all parties to follow and feedback on developments. Examples of these websites can be seen in Project links

Public art works have been produced for hospitals, health centres, schools, libraries, cycle paths and regeneration projects. See  Gallery

Commissioners include: Bristol City Council, Willis Newson, South Gloustershire Council, Unilever, Patchway District Council, Borough of Poole, North Bristol NHS Trust, Central Bedfordshire Council.

“Thanks to Pete for all his hard work and perseverance in completing this project for us. The schools he worked with were truly enthused by his approach and the opportunity to see their work installed on the cycle track. He really worked over and above the original brief to ensure the best outcome possible.”

 – Alison Catlin,  Arts Development Officer, South Gloucestershire Council.

Innovation and Experience

Workshops and Consultation

Pete worked on the Luton Dunstable Busway project for 18 months. This was a project to create five large public artworks reflecting elements of contemporary history. As part of the project he organised and delivered a series of workshops for local schools. Pete also conducted a number of public consultations with the local community.

Pete is very organised and professional. He takes initiative and has a good overview of the public art process. He was very good at communication with all stakeholders involved.

Pete delivered five outstanding large scale stainless steel sculpture. The designs were striking and reflected the theme very well. Pete also listened and incorporated elements into the design from the workshops and consultations. The sculptures were fabricated to an extremely high standard, produced on time and delivered great value for money.The installation of the artworks went very smoothly and they have now become part of the local landscape.  Pete documented the whole project on a dedicated website that he created which was a great way to keep the entire process visible and engaging.

It was a pleasure to work with Pete on this project and we would highly recommend him for other Public Art projects.
