Stained glass artist and student conservator

I trained as an artist at Glasgow School of Art where I learned advanced painting and printmaking techniques. I also spent a term in Stockholm learning how to cold-cast glass. After graduating I gained experince as a conservator for small bird specimens at the National Museum of Scotland. Recently I have married my skills in art and conservation through pursuing an interest in historic stained glass. I have gained experience in this through working with ICON accredited conservator Linda Cannon and Rainbow stained glass studios. I will be starting an MA this September in stained glass conservation and heritage management at the University of York. Currently I am pursuing research in to gaps in  the Scottish stained glass historical record. In the near future I will be developing a project to help gain funding for the Scottish Stained Glass Trust.
