Born and raised in the Midlands, I moved to Brighton in 2005 where I discovered a passion for caring for old buildings, using traditional materials and skills. I began working on The Regency Town House in Hove where I developed a greater understanding of Conservation Principles and the science of Traditional Building Materials. I worked in various Lime Mortar applications from internal plastering to pointing and began to learn about making moulds and casting Ornamental plasterwork. In 2008 I met the stonemasons working on the Royal Pavilion and after talking about our shared passion for historic buildings and traditional crafts I developed a real interest in Stonemasonry. I developed the skills necessary to take me on an ICON Stone Conservation Internship at Rosslyn Chapel. Since my return from Scotland, I have continued working throughout the south, expanding my skills and experience to include Stone and Brick Restoration, Ornamental Plastering, Flint walling and Ruin Consolidation.
I have passed the CSCS Health and Safety test and have Public Liability Insurance.
I am available to work as a sub-contractor in addition to undertaking solo projects. If you would like to discuss your project please call me on 07834 349724.
