I recently had the opportunity to use Pat Lopez
for a project for one of my clients. The project involved painting a strip
of glass to resemble tortoise shell. Part of the problem was that it had to
match the pieces on the other 3 sides of a frame. Pat came by my business
and I told her what I needed, and she explained what it would entail. I was
somewhat skeptical, so imagine my surprise when a week later she came back
and the piece she had painted matched the other 3 exactly. I installed it on
the frame and took it to my client who was ecstatic, as she could not tell
the new piece from the originals. Not only would I not hesitate to use her
again, I would enthusiastically recommend her to anyone.

I have used Patricia's restoration for 15 years in
Santa Barbara. She was through, knowledgeable, reasonable & quick. Her
depth of knowledge on a variety of objects made her the perfect referral for
all the fire victims on Santa Barbara. I would recommend her to Museums,
collectors & dealers.

Pat Lopez has been doing my restoration work
for close to 20 years. She is the best restorer I have ever used. She is
particularly good with problematic jobs. She is in a class of her own on
working on Spanish colonial art, santos, paintings, and retablos, and is
fast and reliable, with fair prices. I have had a lot of experience with
other restorers and it is always annoying to have to listen to them explain
how complicated and difficult the job is. With Pat, she just figures it out
and gets it done.
