“Public art is vital to enhancing the public realm. The scale of the art programme at Trinity Leeds is already positively influencing other developments in the city. You must feel proud of what you have achieved with your contribution”

Andy Scott, Sculptor

“Antonia acted as project manager for my involvement in the Trinity Leeds commission.  Her professionalism and advocacy were extremely valuable, acting as liaison between all parties in a very complex management & construction project.  All of this was done with utmost attention to detail and vitally with the dynamism and eloquence of a professional artist.

It is Antonia’s “hands-on” experience as an artist in her own right which gives her the true understanding of the artist’s role.  This, coupled with her thoroughly researched inside knowledge of the city and her “can-do” attitude made her contributions to the project absolutely essential.

I’d have no hesitation about working with Antonia again.  She made a challenging project easy at the right times, was a passionate advocate for the role of creativity in a construction environment and allowed me the peace of mind to concentrate on the sculpting, knowing that the details were in hand.”

Neil Read, Project Director, Land Securities Group PLC

“Antonia worked for Land Securities on our Trinity Leeds Retail scheme in central Leeds for three years as Arts Facilitator and did an excellent job in the role, from inception to completion she worked with the team to write the briefs, source artists, commission them and with the team deliver a string of Art commissions across the project and across the art spectrum, including temporary works, pop up art and supporting local schools projects and communities initiatives.

Antonia is very committed to the projects she undertakes and provides a first class service at all times, her thoroughness and experience where a huge value to the team and the project, I would be very pleased to recommend her.”

Penny Sanders, Landscape Architect and CEO of Seven Art

“Antonia is a pleasure to work with; she has clarity of thought and is able to communicate in a way that draws the best out of those she works with. Creativity is at the heart of Antonia’s projects as she is able to take the apparently mundane contexts and create art that displays her originality and passion.  Antonia is organised, thorough and a good team player in the design team context.”

Tracy Shaw, Loca Creatives

Over the many years I’ve worked with Antonia on regeneration, public art and community engagement projects she has consistently proved herself to be an excellent facilitator, communicator and project manager as well as a highly skilled artist and designer.  Her professionalism, technical expertise and careful attention to quality and detail are matched by her passion for the work she does – a passion which shines through in all her work and makes her a strong and persuasive advocate for public art, good public realm design and good stakeholder involvement. For all those reasons, Antonia is someone I will always welcome opportunities to work with.

Chris Brown, Igloo Regeneration

“The creative process between commissioner and artist requires the artist to add spoonfuls of creativity to the client’s brief and then to delivery with skill, enthusiasm, energy and above all, artistic ability. Antonia does all of this and more.”

Tom Riordan, Chief Executive, Leeds City Council
