Holes, tears, yellow varnish, and flaking paint don’t need to detract from the beauty of your painting.  Our restoration services will return your artwork to its original appearance.  Paintings can be lined or patched to mend tears or to reattach loose and lifting paint.  Yellow varnish can be removed through a very detailed cleaning process.  Missing areas can also be repaired and retouched.

Send in your work for a free estimate. We carry liability insurance to cover in case of any damages. We take pictures from all over the Unites States. We will assess your work, send an estimate, restore and return.

We currently work with clients throughout the United States providing our art restoration services.

We provide  our high quality services to artists, art galleries, curators, private collectors, auction houses, interior designers, insurance companies and antique dealers. And of course, to our loyal customers and the general public who may have works of art with sentimental value.  We specialize in paintings (oil, acrylic, etc.), paper goods, art research, photo repair, professional art handling, and art installations.

Work brought into the studio (or mailed in) is examined and an expense estimate is given at no charge. On location inspections and proposals are also available at no-cost locally in the Grass Valley/Nevada City, California area.
