Washington Conservation Studio was established in 2010 to provide the highest quality conservation treatment and preservation services for a broad range of paper-based objects: historic manuscripts, prints, printed documents, watercolors, and pastels, as well as parchment and ancient papyrus.
My goal is to provide all clients with the same exacting standards required by major art and archival institutions. Whether you are a discerning collector or a family seeking to preserve precious documents, you'll receive expert service.
While working in a number of studios and labs, I've had the privilege to treat an array of fascinating objects: Old Master paintings, ancient Egyptian papyrus, an Alexander Calder sculpture, the original Star-Spangled Banner flag, a rare copy of the Declaration of Independence, Abraham Lincoln's endorsed presidential paychecks, Audubon's "Birds of America" Elephant folios, papers of the Founding Fathers, and a ticket rescued from the Titanic. This broad range of experience reflects in the treatment work of my studio.
My commitment is to blend conservation science and historic knowledge with an artistic eye, as we strive to save our personal treasures, one by one, for future generations.
Thank you for considering Washington Conservation Studio for your paper conservation needs.
