Serving My US Clients

Conservation Services are as close as your nearest U.S. Post Office. I work with galleries, framers and individuals who do not have easy access to local conservators. Call or e-mail to discuss your needs,  advice on packing, and how to fill out customs declarations.

I am a graduate of Buffalo State College’s Art Conservation Program, one of the top conservation training programs in the US, and have interned in New York and Los Angeles. I am a member of The American Institute for Conservation (AIC) and Western Association for Art Conservation (WAAC). As a result of this experience, I am thoroughly familiar with the needs and requirements of US clients.
