Our founder and director, David Everingham, is a highly experienced and fully qualified conservator who developed his skills at the renowned Bowes Museum and, internationally, at the National Gallery of Australia for many years. In his Harrogate studio, David has been restoring fine art and church heritage artworks for many years and is available to perform on-site work for many different types of artwork too.

Before David proceeds with any restoration, a thorough visual and technical assessment is completed and clients are regularly updated with any progress that has been made. He takes great pride in his work and restorations are performed to the highest of museum standards as he uses high-quality materials and up-to-date techniques to achieve brilliant results. Most importantly, David adheres to strict codes of conservation ethics which are also internationally recognised. Additionally, he has been a long-serving member of the professional body ICON (Institute of Conservation) and the YCCC (York Consortium for Conservation and Craftsmanship). In regard to our services, we undertake conservation work in two main areas, one of which are larger scale projects in churches and historic buildings, as well as the conservation of easel paintings in the Harrogate-based studio. Over the years we’ve had a wide variety of clients, such as Harrogate Borough Council, Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, North East Lincolnshire Council, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (MIMA), The Bowes Museum, and private collections.

Our team

With a background in science, David gained a first degree in Biochemistry at the University of Warwick and then continued his studies by pursuing Cultural Heritage Management And Conservation. Furthermore, he completed an MA (distinction) in the Conversation of Fine Art which was then followed by several years in museum conservation then moving on into the private sector.

Philippa has a degree in Art History and Curatorship from the Australian National University before gaining a Graduate Diploma in Cultural Heritage Management.

As a team, our combined knowledge of science, art history, fine art and heritage management allows us to approach our projects in a unique and holistic way. With in-depth analysis of materials and an understanding of the way they behave and degrade, we can provide a comprehensive approach to the conservation of cultural heritage.
