I'm an independent book and archive conservator based in Islington, North London.

 

As well as interventive conservation, restoration and box-making, I provide clients with a report detailing the history of their book or archival object, in order to increase understanding of its cultural signifance and economic value.

 

I have trained students in interventive and preventive conservation measures and have taught museum staff on how to approach the hazzards of pests, mould and poisons in their collection. 

 

I proof read for the European conservation Journal 'conservation update' and have written for publicaiton, most recently a review of 'Conservation of Books' for the Society of Bookbinder's journal 'The Bookbinder', 2024.

 

Having trained at Camberwell College of Arts with a BA in Book Conservation and a Masters degree in Book Arts, I have worked for instutes such as the Linnean Society of London, All Souls College Oxford, The British Library and Maggs Bros.
