I am working in partnership with Joanna Riddell to create an amazing new sculpture park in Norhumberland, UK. Cheeseburn Sculpture will support creative projects and presents sculpture in the elegant grounds of Cheeseburn Grange. Cheeseburn provides a showcase for sculpture, design and art, where the public can encounter new and established work in the setting of the historic house and gardens. Situated between Newcastle and Hexham, Cheeseburn is currently open by appointment.
