Manchester Cow Parade 2004 Being commissioned to paint two cows for this exciting parade heralded the beginning of my going full time as an artist. It was so unbelievably exciting to be part of this huge public art event.

Colour and pattern, like music, are evocative. I wanted to portray Manchester positively enabling'viewers' to add their colours with the reflective areas, whilst their memories and thoughts are stimulated
Veera the Volunteera Sponsored by Manchester City Council Commonwealth Games Legacy Unit
The success of the Manchester Commonwealth Games in 2002 is undisputed and the atmosphere in the City and surrounding areas was one of excitement and pride.
A vast range of people made the event successful, but for me, as an observer, it was the 10,000 volunteers who added the 'magic' extra to all the proceedings and it was for this reason I wanted to create a Manchester Commonwealth Games Volunteer Cow as an ongoing tribute and thanks to them all.
