I am a skilled, enthusiastic and knowledgeable speaker and regularly give talks, seminars and study days on areas I have written about and other areas within 20thC design, antiques, collecting, and the decorative arts. My talks are packed with facts, opinion, context and take-home information. I am an accredited lecturer for The Arts Society and I have also spoken at locations ranging from village halls and local bookshops to the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.

I offer informative, relaxed, and fun tours of antique shops, centres, and fairs. These are entirely bespoke – tell me what you love and we’ll work something out for you. I’ve also partnered with Truly Experiences to offer ready-made packages, which also make ideal gifts for the antiques lover in your life. Click here to learn more.
