Geoffrey Preston is one of the UK’s leading architectural sculptors, specialising in sculpture and decorative plasterwork for buildings, interiors and gardens.

After studying sculpture at Hornsey College of Art, Geoffrey trained as a stonemason and carver. A founding director of Nimbus Conservation, and later a director of Cliveden Conservation, he undertook many important and often groundbreaking projects including the restoration of the hand modelled plasterwork at Uppark House and Prior Park College.

In recent years he has concentrated on creating new work in clay, plaster and stucco. He works with architects, designers and private clients on projects varying in scale from small commissions to major new decorative schemes.
