Michele S. Kay opened her studio in Westchester County, New York in 1992 to provide museum-quality paintings restoration and conservation services. As a practicing professional in this field for over 30 years, her technical background, expertise in both new and old-world restoration techniques and materials, and artistic sensibility, make her highly qualified to treat a wide array of European and American paintings from Old Masters to Modern Art. Each painting is carefully examined to assess its condition. Whether it is varnish that is aged and yellow, paint film that is cracked, lifted or missing, a canvas support that is torn, distorted or damaged, or a myriad of other problems, a conservation treatment is specifically designed to preserve the structural integrity and restore the visual appearance of the artwork. Ms. Kay is highly skilled in her craft, conservative in approach, and dedicated to providing the highest quality care for each work of art.

Her clients include private collectors, art dealers, institutions and museums.

Clients are advised on all procedures and provided with a treatment report and photographic documentation.
