“I originally trained at Weymouth College in Applied Architectural Stone Work and Conservation before attending Kingston University, London, where I gained a 2:1 BSc Hons Degree in Historic Building Conservation. After this I moved to Edinburgh and worked as a Conservator for private conservation companies, working on historic buildings and objects across the country. “
