Research can be a very time consuming, but essential in creating authentic replica work.

I was fortunate in being commissioned to research the historical correctness for two major replica ship projects. The knowledge gained in creating the decoration for these vessels, has inspired further study of the subject.  The outcome of which, has been the publication of my book ‘Ship decoration 1630-1780’

Please contact me if you require advice, or wish to commission research for a particular project. This may encompass the figurehead or decoration of a particular ship, the person that carved it, through to the decorative arts of a particular period.
