My Painting has a New lease of Life
Elspeth - Reframed pastel portrait
Thank you Julia, I am really delighted with my frame you have kindly restored for me. It has given my painting a whole new lease of life! I had no idea how much a frame could alter a picture. I would be so grateful if you could reframe more of my pictures, you would have then transformed my drawing room!
Her Knowledge and Expertise are Deeply Rooted
Renee - A collegue from the past
Julia is in a class of her very own. Her knowledge and expertise are deeply rooted in a lifelong love for the arts. She is also a talented artist in her own right. She allows every work to speak to her heart and sees the small in the big as well as the big in the smallest piece of art. What a painting has lost, Julia will give back, restoring it as though the creator was holding her hand. With Julia's help, looking becomes seeing and a painting's worth takes on dimensions well beyond its price tag. Her integrity is utterly unshakeable and you may consider yourself blessed if you are lucky enough to be advised by Julia.
It Takes My Breath Away!
John - Conservation of a Chinese oil painting
It takes my breath away – total transformation ! I cannot wait to have it back and hang it in the most prominent place. Thank you for having the vision to see what could be done and the skill to do it.
You Held Us Spellbound
Donald and Mary - Chairman of Heart, NADFAS
Thank you so much from us all for a marvellous study day yesterday. You held us spellbound and we learnt an enormous amount from your demonstrations and your specialist knowledge. From now on I'm sure we shall all look at paintings and their frames with new eyes and with a desire to take them off the wall and look at their backs!

A Delightful and Interesting Lecture
Paula King - Programme Secretary, Ascot NADFAS
I have to say a big thank you for such a delightful and interesting lecture which had a huge very positive response from our members. They were particularly impressed with the way you started such an interesting and valuable career especially most being grandparents now and seeing their youngsters growing up. It is a case of never giving up on a person? I loved the variety and depth of your knowledge for your job and admire your patience, knowledge and obvious enthusiasm for the task ahead.
