Hello! I admit, I have been…
Hello! I admit, I have been away for a few months working on a charity event that I have not yet gotten on Crowdrise. It was an international event called Shimmy Mob, where belly dancers from all over the world performed the same choreography, wearing the same simple outfits, on the same day (May 12th, World Belly Dance Day). The proceeds went to local shelters that help the domestically abused. I bhope next year to have this event showcased here on Crowdrise. Thus, I have been absent and have not had the chance to say 'hello' to new people joining Crowdrise...So... A Belated Welcome to Crowdrise!! Here is a vote (100 points), to help you get rolling!!

CROWDRISING SINCE: May 02, 2012
Stuff About Me:

I'm an art conservator/restorer in the quiet(?) hamlet of Bloomington, IN, surrounded by the rolling hills and karst topography that southern Indiana is famed for. My daughter is my life, second comes my passions for art, design, anthropology, and service to others, and the areas where those things intersect is where I want to live and work. Luckily, I stumbled into art conservation and restoration about 15 years ago, and discovered something I could pursue as a career and never get bored with.

My focus is on preserving neglected treasures of history - those artistic artifacts that lie outside of major institutions, in the hands of families and collectors, that they may be passed on to, educate, and be enjoyed by future generations. Most of these paintings, sculptures, photos, and other antique objects sit on the periphery of people's lives, yet are an important part of the story of their family. I believe that they deserve the respect and care given to works presented as important to the greater culture as kept and preserved in museums. It's therefore necessary to make my services accessible to most budgets. Most of my clients are private owners and collectors, but I also do work for auctioneers and local institutions too small for a dedicated conservation department of their own. To me, nothing is more rewarding than bringing the past back to tangible life for people, especially in the United States where the continuity of our familial and cultural histories often emerges from the dark curtain of immigration only a couple of hundred years ago or less. A sense of place, our roots, are shared via the stories behind these artifacts and made real by their presence.
