public art

All Public Art creations have been to raise awareness and funds for charities around the globe with various Public Art Trails.

These trails have taken me all over the UK and New Zealand.  They encourage locals to explore the city and give families fun, free entertainment to find them all.  After the trail the sculptures are auctioned for the local charity.

Most of these Public Charity Art Trails have been in partnership with Wild in Art.  A global leader in sculpture trails.

Public art events that entertain, enrich, inform and leave a lasting legacy.

Since 2008 Wild in Art has animated cities across the world including Manchester, Sydney, Melbourne, Cape Town and São Paulo, and created public art events for the London 2012 Olympics, the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Historic Royal Palaces and Penguin Random House.

Connecting businesses, artists and communities through the power of creativity, our events to date have enabled more than £15 million to be raised for charitable causes through auctions alone and helped millions of people of all ages to experience art in non-traditional settings.

Being creative through the medium of art not only gives people a voice, it’s also beneficial to health and wellbeing.

Taking part in our events has never felt so good.

“It's fabulous to be a part of something where everyone is a winner – the sponsor gets recognition, the artist gets paid, the public get free art and the auction raises money for a good cause.”
