Working with leaders in the art preservation industry, specializing in the hinging and mounting of photographs and works on paper, I have had the opportunity to experience contemporary art, and it’s predecessors, in ways unlike most: by hand, up close and unframed. I have handled thousands of artworks over the years, evaluating the physicalities to ensure longevity and integrity on its journey into history. My skills and abilities and attention to details have been trusted by ateliers who value and utilize techniques, methods, and materials that foremost consider the present state of the artwork and whose clients are artists, galleries, museums, auction houses and collectors.
Working freelance offered me the opportunity to work in a variety of work environments. This experience taught me how to adjust accordingly, yet, not compromise quality and integrity of the job at hand. My exposure to a variety of work settings has honed my deep understanding of how conditions of a workplace can influence standards and productivity. I have acquired a wide range of skills and knowledge that give me the ability to fluctuate from design to production and management, allowing me to transition smoothly into many positions and work independently with a focus on, and appreciation for, detail and organization, leading to an efficient and satisfactory outcome.
