Arts journalists find a ‘wow’ factor wherever they look. I find it when gazing at jewels, architecture, ceramics – virtually all forms of decorative fine and applied art, antiques, fashion, textiles and contemporary high tech installations (and so on). Lucky me! For the past 20 years I have able to explore myriad art forms while researching and writing about exhibits in London’s world class museums, galleries, auction houses, markets, design venues and fairs. My taste is eclectic and my fascination with the arts insatiable. The sheer wealth of London’s contemporary and historic world of art is addictive. It feels like a voyage of discovery. Subjects I knew little about have stimulated my imagination and enriched my life. Get in touch if you would like me to write for you.
I write about arts & antiques. See my Published Articles page.
