Lectures 

Over the last thirty years a number of related subject areas have been repeatedly researched and presented. What often started as lecture series in University Degree programmes, developed through research and publication to become lifelong passions and interests. The fruits of this timescale are presented below 

Over the last four years I have regularly lectured to a range of societies and groups such as the National Trust, NADFAS, Museums, Institutions, KCWCS (Kensington and Chelsea Women’s Club, The London branch of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society etc. In addition across the years, lectures and refereed papers have been given around the UK, Europe and the World.

Full details and a comprehensive C.V. can be supplied upon request.
