English Heritage

My interests are in the printing of historic wallpapers and associated decorative papers. I have an MA in the Conservation of Historic Wallpapers (V&A /RCA) and a PhD in the History of the English Wallpaper Trade in the Long Eighteenth Century (University of Leicester). I am particularly interested in the historical techniques used to print wallpaper from 17th - 19th centuries, how the trade operated, its links to allied trades and how forces of supply and demand intersected each other in the market for this form of decorative art.
