Gaining a degree in Conservation & Restoration at De Montfort University Lincoln, I graduated in 1997 setting up my business the same year.

Previous to my business I worked as a Stone Conservator restoring sculpture, memorials and monuments, spending a year working in St Mary’s Church, Abergavenny restoring and conserving all the tombs in the church mainly alabaster and limestone. Working for Michael Eastham a Sculpture Conservator.
Before I became interested in Conservation I trained as a Theatrical Prop Maker working for Stephen Pyle who was based in Hitchin.
Working on West End shows such as Phantom of the Opera, Aspects of Love and for Glynbourne Opera House to name but a few...
I have also been employed by the National Trust working at Shaw's Corner as a conservation cleaner looking after the house and its contents.

The scope of work includes:
Examination, stabilisation, cleaning, stain removal, repair, consolidation and restoration of artifacts to a high standard with the minimum of intervention.

These days I am based in my studio and no longer do site work.

Most of the work I have had has been china restoration, but have also discovered the wide range of her talent in the conservation of paper, frames, textiles and stone and her ability to turn her hand to conservation of most kinds .
In all my dealing with Viki I have found her to be most professional and business like , methodical and ethical, a real crafts woman who is also highly organised in her paperwork, estimates and delivery times. Rare.
