01 COLLECTIONS MANAGEMENT

No time to take an inventory? Too many details?

  1. Let me catalogue and photograph your collection and create a fully integrated database using collections management software. Now you can reclaim order.
     

  2. I will generate customized reports so you can analyze and share your collection by artist, type, value, or location. The database can link existing files of: provenance, purchase information, appraisals, conservation records, personal stories, and notes for dissemination. Don’t let the stories be lost.
     

  3. I offer advice on general care including: safe handling, cleaning, display, storage, and shipping. This way, the artwork retains value and you can keep doing what you love to do…collect!
     

  4. I facilitate appraisals and make referrals for disposition bringing simplicity to informed decision-making.

Confidentiality and attention to detail are the hallmarks of my business. 

 

02 CONSERVATION

When disaster strikes…or an object has suffered from time & neglect…

​Let me dispel the mystery.  Here are the exact steps involved in the “conservation treatment of an object”:

1. Examination: observe, identify materials, assess condition

2. Treatment Proposal: note condition and list recommended treatment

3. Estimate: provide quote of time and cost involved

4. Treatment: stabilize surface & structure, clean, reintegrate losses

5. Treatment Report: document process with written & photographic records
