Scottish Wall Paintings Conservators was set up in 2005 following my experience as a Structural Paintings Intern in a collaboration between Historic Environment Scotland and the National Trust for Scotland. As an accredited member of Icon, I work throughout Scotland as a  wallpaintings conservator in the private sector.

I believe that safeguarding wallpaintings in Scotland’s historic buildings enhances our experience of cultural heritage, bringing history alive. My particular passion is for the protection of Scottish Renaissance painted decoration. While I often work independently, I regularly lead conservation teams or collaborate with other conservation specialists depending upon the scale and complexity of a project. Over the years I have gained considerable experience treating a diverse range of wallpaintings dating from16thC to contemporary.

MY CLIENTS include The National Trust for Scotland (NTS), Scottish Historic Buildings Trust (SHBT) and numerous other heritage organisations; conservation architects; private owners; historic building developers; and churches.

MY MAIN RESPONSIBILITIES include preparing extensive condition surveys and advisory reports; carrying out conservation/restoration treatments and architectural paint research; advising on environmental control and appropriate conditions for the care and protection of structural paintings.

I enjoy sharing my conservation work with others, and am an enthusiastic guest lecturer for Historic Environment Scotland’s postgraduate Building Conservation course. I also present lectures on behalf of historic trusts and in my capacity as an ICOMOS-IIWC Expert Committee Member.
