Conservation for House Museums in New England

So nice you are here! I am a conservator for historic interiors and painted artifacts, for over twenty years, and have worked with very special colleagues on projects at amazing institutions and organizations. Currently I am sharing my experience in short, practical ideas sessions, on site, in New England. If you are a historic house museum or caring for a small collection, I can help you set preservation and conservation priorities, understand your research needs, and define a practical multi-stage project plan. Additionally, I am building a historic materials library, for design professionals who enjoy historic interiors, and heritage professionals who enjoy design. This library will bring principles and ideas to life by sharing concrete examples of historic materials and colored surfaces. Finally, if you are interested in pigment trade and painting techniques from the ancient world and beyond, you can find some of my research here, too. Hope you’ll enjoy!
