About Cyndie Lack

I work with private and public clients as a treatment conservator, consultant, adviser and educator.

After studying paintings conservation in Canada and the UK, I established the first private, professional art conservation practice in Alberta in 1990, and in 2015, relocated my business to Vancouver Island. While I have a particular interest in 19th century works, I’ve treated paintings dated from the 17th century to the present day.
