Trudi Lloyd Williams
I specialise in projects that are inspired by places and communities. My work is site specific; utilising research, collaboration, community skills and design through to final installation.
I am an experienced artist working individually, collaboratively and as lead artist. I am also an experienced project manager for urban centre projects, site sensitive historic sites and rural landscape and waterways projects with teams of artists, designers, landscape architects, architects and developers.
Frequently I am involved in sourcing local businesses and artisans to construct and install work, building and developing local networks, leading to a cross fertilisation of ideas and minimising waste and energy.

Olympic mosaics by Tessa Hunkin and Friends
From July 2011 to May 2012 a team of dedicated volunteers worked in a shop in Murray Grove, Hackney, to create a series of large wall mosaics for a park in nearby Shepherdess Walk. The designs were created by mosaicist Tessa Hunkin and inspired by the ancient mosaics of Roman North Africa. The idea was to commemorate the year of the Olympics in a classical art form that conjured up both the ancient past and the life of modern Hackney.
