I graduated in History of Art from the University of East Anglia and joined the Gallery’s Picture Library in 1995 after working in a similar role at the Science Museum. I moved to the Heinz Archive & Library in 1997. I have curated temporary displays at the Gallery, including Changing Impressions: A Print Conservation Project in Focus, 2002; Portraits of Alphonse Legros, 2004; Nelson: Before and After Trafalgar, 2005; and Henry VIII Remembered, 2008. I am currently working on a major loan exhibition on the life of the 1st Duke of Wellington, to be held at the Gallery in 2015.
Areas of interest / research
My research interests include the history of prints and printmaking, portraits of military and naval personalities and the reception and interpretation of those portraits.
