Restoration & Conservation

I undertake select furniture, architectural and object restoration and conservation, refinishing and repair work.

I use traditional finishes and techniques, such as shellac and oil based grain fillers. I completed a trade certificate in French Polishing at Lidcombe TAFE, Sydney in the 1990s under David Marks.
