Conservation and restoration is the maintenance and preservation of our cultural heritance. This means intervention into the process of decline, or in some cases, repairing damage caused by earlier restorations.

The art collector is very often uninformed of the potential problems that can arise concerning the conservation of his art work. The art going public and even artists themselves know very little regarding the restoration process. For this reason I maintain an open restoration atelier to help illustrate the complexities of this interesting--but little understood--profession.

It goes without saying that the art restorer assumes a great responsibility in the practice of his profession. I respect the value of each work of art; every work has its own individuality and intrinsic value. It encapsulates a moment in history, reflecting the vision and skills of its creator.

RESTORATION is a complex process!
It has sound and feeling of PRESERVATION.
Keep what you have - conserve - preserve.
Science and technology have given us the tools necessary to restore and preserve what is valuable and historically significance.
I use these tools as well. I study every facet of the object to be restored, combining old-fashioned skill with art historical and scientific research.

Each painting requires individual treatment. The authenticity of the painter is guaranteed.

                            RESPECT IS THE BASIS OF MY ETHICAL PRINCIPLES.
