After eleven years in Surrey, myself and my family moved home to Scotland in July of this year. Whilst all sorts of new opportunities await, Glasgow being so rich in cultural heritage with first class museum collections to explore and re-discover, it is with some regret that I leave Surrey behind.
As a painting conservator with a love of every kind of museum collection I have thoroughly enjoyed my time assisting Surrey Museums with all manner of conservation concerns. In doing so, I have learnt so much, met so many interesting people and relished the rich diversity of the collections in Surrey. It has been a huge privilege and a great pleasure.
I am very grateful to the Surrey Museum Partnership, particularly Haidee Thomas and Julian Pooley for all their support and encouragement through the years and also the staff at The Surrey History Centre, especially Jeff Dowse; thank you Jeff for sharing your studio with me. I will always remember it as a very happy time.
Meanwhile, I am immersing myself in the cultural life of Scotland and will forge a new path in due course. I will also continue in my work with Christies in London.
