Caroline Oliver

I am an experienced frames conservator who worked at the Guildhall Art Gallery in London for 15 years. I trained at De Montfort University, gaining a BA(Hons) in Conservation and Restoration in 2001. I was accredited (ACR) by the Institute of Conservation (Icon) in 2008 and am an assessor for their Professional Accreditation of Conservator-Restorers scheme.

All my work is completed to the Institute of Conservation’s Professional Standards and I have collaborated on projects with major institutions including the V&A and the Museum of London. I have also worked on projects large and small in the private sector for a number of conservation companies and the National Trust.
