Sylvia Krauss ACR
About MeI have been practising since 1996 after finishing training in Germany and have a broad range of experience, gained in the museum environment as well as in private practise. My expertise covers paintings of all periods and techniques, painted sculpture, frames and contemporary art. Thanks to securing a number of very rewarding project employments during my earlier career, I have gained invaluable experience working in Germany, Britain and the Netherlands. Each year however, I spent the summer holidays travelling the Western Highlands of Scotland, falling in love with country and people. I am delighted that finally relocating to Scotland in 2005 to help preparing some of the Old Master paintings now on display at Kelvingrove Art Gallery, has enabled me to keep doing the work I am specialised in and enjoy very much, whilst living where I really want to be.
