After attending West Dean College, I became a freelance Conservator in 1982 and have been a Limited Company since 2000.

In 2000 I achieved Accredited Conservator Restorer status. During the last 30+ years I have undertaken numerous commissions for the antiques trade, private individuals, private and public sector bodies of varying sizes and in a range of locations. These commissions have included conservation, restoration, condition survey/care audits, documentation and curatorial services.

I have also used my extensive knowledge to provide advice and guidance to a number of organisations in respect of funding applications and purchase decisions.

While the majority of my work is to ceramics and glass, I also have experience of assessing and working on materials such as: enamels, lacquer wares, bone, ivory, marble, alabaster, paintings on glass & cold painted bronzes.

I  place great value on the development of others and since 1986 have been involved in the ceramics modules on the BSc & MSc courses in Archaeological Conservation in what is now known as Cardiff Metropolitan Universty, giving lectures and demonstrations, and being involved in discussions/forums with students and lecturing staff.

Over the years I have been, and continue to be, a mentor to a number of students and qualified conservators, helping them enables me to pass my knowledge and experience on. Communication of conservation is also key, as is interaction with others.

I have regularly attended and given talks at the “Conservation Matters in Wales”, and “Ceramic and Glass Conservation Group” forums.

I have also spoken to groups such as Probus, U3A, and various “Friends” groups about my work which affords me an opportunity to raise the profile of conservation and explain the ethical considerations, and thought processes involved, to the wider public.

As part of my work I have worked with a number of contemporary artists, advising them on choice of materials, helping them to create and,  in some cases, conserve their works of art.
