My growing interest in buildings and architecture is the result of a process of osmosis over 35 years. When my husband Roger Mears and I bought a derelict watermill in Wales in 1969, I discovered the (then) Wind and Watermills Section of SPAB, and became a life member. My professional experience lies in fine art publishing for 20 years, and running charities and sitting on charity boards for a further 20 years. My role at RMA is to provide advice and support on marketing,promotion,events preparation, as well as preparing presentations, and general printed, web and other written materials.
