I am a professional Art Conservator with a BSc with Honors in Conservation of Antiquities and Materials Science from Institute of Archaeology, University College London (1982) and a BA in Ancient Studies/Archaeology from University of Maryland Baltimore County (1979). My training internships were with the Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore, the Smithsonian Institution Ethnology Laboratory and Southside Historical Sites in Williamsburg.
I have been working as a conservator of art objects for more than 35 years and currently have a private studio in the Seattle area of Washington State. I have treated a wide range of archaeological, ethnographic, historical and modern materials from many sites and cultures. I perform surveys, examinations, and treatments, and provide advice for the care, storage and display of objects of art. I can also provide educational presentations concerning art conservation issues and the care of art collections.
Through the years I have served many museums, Native American Tribes, historical societies, and other institutions, as well as private collectors in London, Baltimore, New Orleans, North Carolina, Alaska, Hawaii and Washington State USA.
