The Studio takes a sensitive and critical approach to paintings conservation and restoration, practising minimal intervention to restore the balance and integrity of each painting. The Studio is secure with a controlled environment, and is comprehensively equipped to accommodate most easel paintings.

The Studio undertakes the conservation and restoration of all types of easel paintings and can also arrange technical analysis with sub-contractors. Full written and photographic documentation of the treatment process is provided for each painting. Technical analysis and art-historical research is carried out as required in order to inform the treatment, drawing on a broad network of expertise for dendrochronology, technical imaging, scientific analysis, and art historical investigation. Arrangements can be made for painting analysis, framing, art handling and shipping/transportation. The Studio also provides condition reports for paintings and advice prior to acquisition. 

The studio was established in 1997 by Katherine Ara.
