We understand that some collections are unlikely to be housed in museum quality atmospheric and light conditions so it is our mission as private conservation professionals with extensive training and special expertise to provide ethical and innovative methods to help revive and protect fine art objects. We only perform and recommend treatments which are appropriate to the integrity and preservation of all art works.
About Our Services
Works on Paper
We work with all types of objects on paper including watercolours, prints, mixed media, photographs, certificates and other paper objects. Our goal when working on any paper object is to provide chemical and physical stabilization for preservation.
We restore paintings on canvas, board, metal, glass and many other types of substrates.
We offer conservation and restoration services for textiles including tapestries, needle work, banners, and works on any textile substrates including silk.
