Emma was born and brought up in London. She studied history and law at Cambridge University then became a Barrister at the Inner Temple. She joined the Government Legal Service with responsibility for human rights cases and later worked in the Court of Criminal Appeal. She left legal practice to bring up children George and Claudia and returned to work in 2007 founding a small art tours club. She took a degree in History of Art at Birkbeck College, London University specialising in British Art of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. She became a Blue Badge Guide to London in 2016 after studying for 2 years and taking lots of exams. She has decided not to do any more for the time being. While she has intimate knowledge of the major tourist sites, she also knows the hidden away nooks and crannies of London with its endless fascinating treasures for all “studious and curious” travelers.
Hattie has a degree in History of Art and an MA in Historic Interiors, she has a life-long passion and fascination in Fine and Decorative Arts, particularly works produced in Europe from the 16th to 18th century. After working for the Royal Collection in the Print Room at Windsor Castle, she was a curator for a private collector of 17th and 18th century prints and drawings. This sparked a keen interest in portraiture and English art, as well as the printed image. Hattie has worked for London's foremost framer of important old master paintings during which time she sharpened her appreciation and understanding of the decorative arts and the changing tastes of collecting. Recently she has been dealing in prints and works of art as well as taking groups of all ages to museums and galleries.
