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.
