ARH Conservation


I can provide most estimates free of charge following visual examination at my studio. I work from home reducing overheads so you will find my rates very competitive. You can bring artworks to me in Hackney, East London for a quote but I can often provide a ball-park figure from photographs, measurements, context and a description of the problem via email and phone.

My rate for all works undertaken is £40 per hour and associated costs where appropriate i.e. materials travel or call out charge.

Work can be undertaken either in situ or in studio conditions as appropriate.

The painting after conservation treatment

“What a difference. I thought after such a big tear and having let this picture get in such a state for so many years that it was beyond repair. But with Andrew’s meticulous touch not only was the tear fixed but my great great grandfather has been bought back to life. I look at it now and I cannot see where the tear was, I can now see his clothing in such detail, the signature and date have appeared as if from nowhere. It really is fantastic.”
