Restoration Conservation & Specialty Finishing
I restore and conserve fine furniture and objects. My studio is highly regarded for its work with fine painted finishes, period lacquer, japanning, traditional water gilding, plaster, earthenware & tortoiseshell.
I also provide highly specialized finishing services. This includes replacement of lost finishes on period antiques as well as accurate reproduction finishing on newly made pieces.
Consultation and onsite services are available.
My work caters to both design professionals and private collectors. Clientele includes architects, interior designers, fine antique dealers, auction houses and private individuals.
I received a BFA in Restoration from the FIT in Manhattan and continued studies of art history and restoration in Florence, Italy. My background includes painting, sculpture, ceramics and studio furniture making.
