Middlegate garden, Mariners Row, Great Yarmouth,  2004

“Andrew is a really experienced and versatile artist who did a fantastic job on the Middlegate site in Great Yarmouth and knows GY pretty well. He’s also now been selected to work on the Integrated Service Centre building in GY so is going to be active in the area. He’s a great all rounder and easy to work with so I would recommend you ask him to meet for a chat to explore some possible areas of intervention in the scheme”

“The success of the scheme, I believe, depended largely on the choice of Andy Tanser who had experience of working in workshops and collaborating with builders and a design team, aswell as being a highly talented sculptor/artist in his own right. He proved to be an ideal project organiser.


He quickly established an excellent working relationship with Alison (Atkins) who perhaps not as experienced as Andy nevertheless contributed hugely, not only with her own work, but in the general running of the scheme with the rest of the team.”
