Consulting & Education for Collectors –
Whether you have one artwork or many, are a seasoned collector or just beginning, expert guidance on framing your collection has decided advantages. Frame selection, frame restoration, proper museum conservation practices, interface and oversight of projects are all available services.
A survey of the frames in your collection provides valuable information: is the frame historically appropriate? Does it complement and support the artwork? Is it framed utilizing museum conservation standards that will protect the artwork? Does the frame need repair or restoration? Receive a written report and scholarly background information on historical frame designs and makers when pertinent to your frames. A survey is a good starting point to see to the proper and effective presentation of your collection.
Projects included: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY (American Paintings Department); Charles Hosmer Morse Museum, FL; Springfield Museum of Art, MA.

Inquire about working with Suzanne
“We have known Suzanne for close to twenty years. Suzanne has worked on the framing of our collection from the beginning, and we found each choice has honored the artwork and enhanced the integrity of the artwork itself. Suzanne is the consummate professional as well as a person who has never ceased to work on our behalf.”
