I am partner in The Silk Forest we make artificial plants, trees and landscapes, specialising in inherently fire retarded products. I came out of electronics to start this business 23 years ago with my partner- don't ask how, it's too long a story! We also supply a range of artificial props, and can custom build if required.
As this is a bio, I'll add that I am also studying for a Doctorate in Landscape Archaeology, at the University of Leicester, having gained my Degree in 2007 and Masters in 2011.
I don't have time for much else other than work and Archaeology.
