Our Institutional Clients

From our studio in Portland Oregon we’ve served private and institutional clients for four decades. Typically our region ranges from Southern California to Canada, and into Montana, Idaho, Nevada, and Arizona. Occasionally we go beyond the west when no other conservator is nearby or when a specialty is needed that is not available in their area.
