Fine and Decorative Art

I’m responsible for the art collections in the museum which cover fine art (paintings, watercolours, drawings, prints, sculpture) dating from 1650 to the present day. I also look after the decorative art collection which comprises: ceramics, furniture, musical instruments, costume and textiles which date from 1566 to the present day.

Particular areas of interest include local artists, Pre-Raphaelites, the Arts and Crafts Movement, Eighteenth Century porcelain and women's fashion.
