Training and Experience


After graduating in the History of Drawing and Printmaking with Applied Science at Camberwell Art School, I worked for 2 years in oil painting conservation. I worked in Naples for 8 years on gilded objects such as organ lofts, ceilings, furniture and statues for museums, the Royal Palace and churches.

Returning to Britain, I worked for 3 years at Arnold Wiggins frame makers in London, repairing old frames or gilding replica frames for museums, collections and private clients.

In 1999 I established Guyon Gilding and have since then been working independently all over the UK for historic and stately homes, museums, private clients and dealers.
