Based on Vancouver Island, Canada, I’m an accredited paintings conservator in private practice with over 25 years’ experience.


Conservation treatment of paintings and historic picture frames is best performed in studio.

The following services can be performed in situ:

  • condition reporting of artworks
  • in-situ treatment of non-mobile works of art, e.g. murals

Works of art on paper (e.g. watercolours) generally require the specialized care of a paper conservator. Please consider the Canadian Association of Professional Conservators for listings of accredited members by specialization type and geographic region.
