40 something creative years! Personal expression along with College, University, workplace and self employed technical training and research have in themselves created a unique blend of practical skills, materials knowledge and design flair. I have studied drawing, painting, general Conservation & Restoration, specialist gilding and Historic Decorative Crafts. I have worked with De Montfort University, Lincoln University, Lincoln College and managed Heritage Conservation projects of national importance. I specialise in most types of gilded, painted, decorated/embellished surface - wood, paper, plaster, glass and metal both indoors and out. I also design and create new, detailed decorative schemes for interiors - both contemporary and historic. I manage complex conservation projects from analysis, treatment proposal and sourcing funding through to completion and final archive reports. I conserve and restore gilded and painted furniture and objet d'art. I am a traditional signwriter and artist, having sold many paintings in the UK - I work from my studio in Nottinghamshire where I live. I am passionate about organic gardening, writing and wildlife conservation.
