About Me

I hold a masters degree in the history of art from the University of Oxford and a diploma in the conservation of easel paintings from the Hamilton Kerr Institute, University of Cambridge.

Before becoming an artist, I worked as a paintings conservator, restoring paintings for museums, galleries and collectors in the UK and abroad and researching historical painting techniques. 

I have lectured and published internationally on historical painting techniques, including in the UK, France, the Netherlands, Denmark, the USA and China and have provided teaching materials for both the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and the Getty Conservation Center, Los Angeles. My educational copies of historical paintings have been exhibited at the National Gallery, London, and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.

I am also the author of a book on painting in the early Italian Renaissance, Cennino Cennini's 'Il Libro dell'Arte' (Archetype 2015).
