As a practicing conservator and researcher, I have published various articles and book chapters.

Most recently, I published a Reflection for the Castlemaine Art Museum (CAM) about my recent treatment of a Dora Meeson painting.


My other contributions to the CAM Reflections series (Part 1 and Part 2) are about two small French paintings in the CAM collection by John Longstaff.
