Over and above providing a service of art curation, promotion, facilitation and outlet Grierson Galleries also provides an art restoration service utilising the skills of Nick Hampshire who lives in Cranbrook, Kent. Through Nick the gallery offers art restoration of the highest quality using traditional techniques.
Nick received formal art training from a local artist and followed this with a two-year apprenticeship as a picture restorer. Nick specialises in Victorian art and artists and has diversified his own style of painting using his talents as both a restorer and artist using traditional techniques following closely in the footsteps of the 19th century artists. He has undertaken this work for more than 40 years. Previous commissions include restoration in churches in Sidcup and Orpington, private galleries and auction rooms.
