Maris is a very honest person both with respect to trustworthiness and especially with respect to his craft and art. He is painstaking in his work and has excellent color sense. He came to me on his own inquiry and was initially not contracted for services. On a second inquiry he was given a canvas with considerable problems, viz.,paint loss,holes,, dirty, etc. The work in all areas was most impressive. He has since been given many works to restore and each time the work is excellent. I strongly recommend Maris for painting restoration without any reservation.

      “Maris, the work you do means a lot. I am glad you helped me to decide to save something that may have otherwise been gone. Preserving old art is important.

He wanted a frame from the same period as his painting which was very dirty from smoke, old varnish and normal aging. It also had a small hole. A […]

      Is there a line in the restoration process where you stop or continue working even when it goes against restoration ethics? How can a restorer have the “nerve” to recreate other artist’s works? I saw this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2J2dByE3_wg and my first impression was horror. How could he be doing what he did? He was […]
