||"I own and operate a private practice in Painting Conservation. We adhere to the American Institute of Conservationís Code of Ethics that requires documentation, photography, and reversibility of materials, executed in a professional manner.|
Conservation treatments can return your painting to near its original appearance. It is possible to repair punctures, tears, flaking paint, and discolored varnish layers. Paintings on canvas can be patched or lined to repair tears. Ground layers can be consolidated. Flaking, cupping, and cleaving paint can be reattached. Grime and discolored varnish can be removed. Panel paintings can be cleaned and the cracks repaired. "
