CONSERVATION

 

I have worked and studied with archaeological institutes, fine arts museums, university collections and private collectors. 

I have experience with ceramics, metal, wood, paintings, decorated surfaces, textiles, paper, bone and ivory, leather and basketry.

My expertise is in finding resourceful and minimally invasive solutions for the display and renewal of cultural materials.
