Good heritage interpretation needs to use a range of media to engage people with a place and meet the aims of those who care for it. My work helps you produce solutions that are right for your goals, your site and your visitors.

I have managed projects that involve commissions for sculptors and poets to create site-specific artwork, installing an exhibition in a visitor centre, and producing an imaginative guidebook to read on a train or a boat journey. I specialise in developing engaging storylines and in writing clear, lively text. I enjoy working as part of a creative team, whether that’s with a national government agency or a local community group. I have built trusted relationships with many clients, working with them on numerous projects.

On site

The physical relationship between people and place is at the heart of everything I do.

Exhibitions

Projects that bring a number of different media together, usually (but not always!) in a building.

Digital

Digital and on-line media offer all sorts of possibilities – and all sorts of challenges too.
