My Conservation
Philosophy

Paper reflects the richness of history.  Whether it is a piece of art, a historical document, an important photograph, or an entire collection, my first goal is to honour the intent of the original.  Using current research-based techniques and scientifically tested materials, I work to preserve the chemical and physical stability of the original.  My goal is to improve the aesthetics as much as possible, so that you, your family, or your community can continue enjoying your art and material heritage for generations to come. 

As an accredited member of the Canadian Association of Professional Conservators and a Professional Associate member of the American Institute for Conservation of Art and Historic Works I ensure your works receive the highest standard of care.
