In short, about me..


14 - 157 Conservation Studio 035I am qualified paper and leather conservator with some knowledge about chemistry, a technology of materials, and paper and parchment history and over twenty years of experience in the field of conservation with expertise in works of art on paper and archival materials. In 1986 after 5 years of studies at prestigious Nicholas Copernicus University, Faculty of Fine Arts, in Poland and completion of research thesis I received my postgraduate degree Magister Artium (the equivalent of Master of Arts). I received this degree in Preservation of Cultural Property specialising in the Conservation of Paper and Leather Historic Objects.


I was carrying out practical conservation work on a wide range of objects for museums, private collectors, city councils, and parishes. I have gained experience in handling objects made from a wide variety of different materials such as wood,  polychromed or gilded, varnished and lacquered surfaces, paper, textile, leather, acryl, oil, watercolour paints.


In 2007 I joined the staff of Museum of Transport in Glasgow as the Paper Project Conservator for the Riverside Project.  I significantly extended my knowledge about paper objects, environmental condition paper objects, while working on conservation treatments and documentation of the collection.


I was carrying out projects and assignments for Glasgow Museums and working as a team member. While working on the Riverside Project I gained deep knowledge about large collections and museum procedures.


I’m just simply saying that I am a part of all I did.

This blog is a walk through my daily life, work, arts & crafts history, my discovery that everything in my life is enough to be a continuous source of reflection. I started blogging to entertain myself but I hope you enjoy it too. I'm sure you agree, that Life without art is nothing. :)
