Two mosaics on adjacent walls at the South East corner of Hackney Downs. The long wall shows the wild flowers to be found in the meadow in the summer months, as well as 8 of the local dogs. 

Around the the corner are portraits of a further 21 dogs.

Garden of Hope

Wall panel made with patients on the psychiatric wards at Saint Ann’s Hospital, Tottenham. The patients made the border sections and came up with the concept for the centre panel. The mosaic now hangs in the courtyard garden beside the wards.

Albion Parade

Made in conjunction with the pupils of Grasmere School. The centre panel shows the giants who the Romans described as the inhabitants of the Island of Albion when they first arrived.
