I am a qualified and insured
freelance conservator of historic objects with a BA
(1:1) and MA (Merit) from the University of Lincoln,
with four years postgraduate experience. I'm based
mostly in Lincoln and the East Midlands area, with a
strong working relationship with Banks Newton Heritage and Bishop Grosstesste
Archaeology Unit. I am currently employed as a Lab Technician within the Aerospace industry, which has given me a greater understanding of scientific principles and increased my technical skills. I maintain my self-employed work around my full time position.
I have varied experience on a wide
selection of object types from natural history to
archaeology - allowing me to learn and demonstrate
specific and transferable skills in my treatments. I've
worked in a variety of environments including education
sessions and on-site work, gaining confidence in a
number of settings. Linked to conservation, I have a
strong interest in object based learning and its impact
on learners, conservators and the objects.
