One of 2 bronze sculptures commissioned by The Mater Hospital, Belfast.  I love the challenge of creating works for the public domain, particularly hospital settings.  Over the past 20 years I have worked with councils, architects and other clients, responding to specific briefs, in order to create the works you see here.
