The Paper Conservator, vol 9https://www.tandfonline.cm/doi/abs/10.1080/03094227.1985.9638470https://www.tandfonline.cm/doi/abs/10.1080/03094227.1985.9638470shapeimage_4_link_0

I started my private practice in 1995, dedicated to conserving and restoring works on paper and eastern pictorial art for museums, historical societies, universities, corporations, and private collections. Besides hands-on treatment, I provide full professional services including consultation and collection assessments. My work is informed by my training and experience, as well as a strict adherence to the Code of Ethics of the American Institute for Conservation.

At the institutions where I’ve worked, and at Pitt’s University Art Gallery, Archives Service Center, Special Collections Division, and Carnegie Mellon University’s Hunt Botanical Institute, I have lectured and conducted workshops. I have mentored over twenty conservation interns and trained curatorial staff, art handlers, interns and volunteers on the fundamentals of art conservation, art handling and packing. I enjoy teaching and feel privileged to have learned so much from these interactions. Attending professional workshops to keep my training current has been an important piece of my growth as a conservator.

As an exhibition curator for the The Andy Warhol Museum, and the Honolulu Museum of Art, I donned the many hats of a researcher/conservator/curator/exhibition designer. This was a rare opportunity for a conservator and I found this collaborative work to be deeply satisfying!

My institutional and corporate clients include the Smithsonian Heritage Preservation, the Norton Simon Museum, the Frick Pittsburgh, the Carnegie Museum of Art, the Andy Warhol Museum, the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art, the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Soldiers and Sailors Memorial, Chatham University, Carnegie Mellon University, University of Pittsburgh, Duquesne University, Dickinson College, Juniata College, Mellon Bank, Dollar Bank, PNC Bank, BNY Mellon, US Steel, Pittsburgh Public Schools, Westinghouse and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort.
