Stephanie Limoges, senior paintings conservator, received her masters degree in the specialization of paintings conservation from the University of Melbourne, Australia. She has since had over 7 years experience working in both paintings and frames conservation at major fine arts institutions in Australia, and more recently, here in the Bay Area at the Oakland Museum of California. She has now been working with Preservation Arts (formerly known as SF Art Conservation) for 2 1/2 years.
She has a long history in reproduction frame making, gilding and the restoration of frames and polychrome objects prior to gaining her degree in paintings conservation.
Her treatment experience and expertise run from medieval panel paintings right through to contemporary acrylics and mixed media. She has also done extensive work in collections care, including condition assessments and whole collection surveys, as well as storage and environmental assessments and monitoring.
