Pat Lopez Art Restoration


Welcome to Pat Art Restoration. We are located in Santa Barbara.

“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.” – Michael Haskell, Owner, Michael Haskell Antiques, Montecito, California.
