Artwork from private clients covers a broad range of documents, family heirlooms and fine art in the form of watercolors, pastels, etching engravings, lithographs and other media. Each artifact, regardless of financial or historical value, gets the same attention to detail. A Civil War letter, an original Audubon print handed down from a grandparent or a water-damaged diploma have a place in that family’s history. It is a privilege to work with individuals on the long-term preservation of their family treasures and fine art collections.
My clients are mainly from the New England area, but I do work for several individuals that live in other parts of the US. Their artwork is sent to me by either the USPO, FedEx and/or UPS. If you wish to work with me this way, please insure your artwork for travel, pack it well (call if you have questions about the best method), and let me know that it’s on the way so that I can keep an eye out for it. (Tracking numbers are a good idea).
