I am an applied artist producing custom gilded furniture and architectural finishes utilizing traditional historic gilding methods and materials in conjunction with contemporary materials and technologies.
I also teach professional level classes in the techniques I’ve practiced over the past thirty years.
I trained in fine art, gaining both BA and MA then taught art and design, before transferring my skills into gilding. I’ve been lucky enough to meet so many good people along the way, that have encouraged and taught me. Been gilding since 2001. I was taught by two really good men in my area. Both conservators/restorers who were willing to share their knowledge and skills. I’ve worked at several big country houses here in the UK and done gilding , both oil and water, for many private individuals as well. I love experimenting with water gilding and also verre eglomise, which I am still developing, as I believe contemporary interiors would benefit from up to date designs.
