I specialize in the restoration of paintings on canvas and wood, picture frame restoration and some sculpture (depending on the material).  I utilize conservation methods and materials to restore and preserve the original artwork.  Often the painting will require cleaning and I will repair any tears in the canvas and any other damage to the artwork including water damage, mold, smoke, discoloration or whatever else may need repairing to bring the painting back to its original state (including the frame).  

Please contact me to discuss your project or if you are out of town, you may send me photos so I can review the work and get back with you.  There is no charge for you to bring your artwork to my studio for a consultation.  Once I have seen the art in person, I can give you an estimate on the repair.
