I am more than a Public Artist, I am a Community Artist. To me places have meaning, vibrancy and interest because of the people who live and work there…. I try to understand how the community identifies itself, and how they use and envision the use of their shared public space.… The journey fosters both relationships and creativity, which is why I do what I do.
