Public art must first serve the immediate community and secondly it should reflect well on the larger town, city or commissioning agency. Before putting pen to paper, I like to spend time at the site, watching and talking with people who will be impacted by the project.
Rather than simply install a decoration or an ornament that people have to walk around, I prefer to engage people with my work. Often, I employ a narrative. Much of my work amuses, some of it inspires, but no one sees it as something just plopped into their neighborhood.
I'm not wed to a particular medium and entertain a wide range of materials from pencil to carved stone to cast bronze - whatever suits the design, the environment and the budget. My work is accessible to the widest of audiences, children - adults, and across cultures and classes.
