I specialize in the conservation of art on paper, photographs, documents and books. I enjoy taking on challenging treatments, with a particular fondness for modern and contemporary art, as well as old master prints and drawings.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Master of Arts (M.A.) degrees in Paper and Book Conservation from the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart.
In recent years I have worked on a variety of objects ranging from the early 9th century to the present. My conservation experience includes medieval manuscripts, incunabula, rare documents by people such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Mahatma Gandhi or Benjamin Franklin, as well as artworks by Albrecht Dürer, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Pablo Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein, Mel Ramos, Vincent van Gogh and Willem de Kooning.
My research focuses on the influence of light on paper and media. I introduced high power LEDs to the process of aqueous bleaching of paper objects. My work has been published in professional journals and presented at international conferences.
