"While the library does not focus on the acquisition of works of art, we do delight in our little collection of Payro paintings. We are happy to be stewards of this unique and perfectly appropriate body of work. I must confess, though, that it entirely escaped my notice that the paintings desperately needed attention. Having no personal experience with fine art, I failed to realize the need for some professional restoration, and never would have imagined the difference it would make… The library is indebted to you for the application of your skill and the time you donated beyond your compensation…You have been generous to the current and future residents of Wakefield, and we are very pleased with the results. Thanks to you, we now have a gleaming historical collection to pass along."
"It was like magic how Lisa was able to restore my mother’s paintings. They were in terrible (practically irreparable) condition. Lisa not only repaired and restored them—she worked her magic and brought them back to life as we remember them. It was an arduous task—and she succeeded beyond all of our expectations! Thank you Lisa!"
"I can’t thank you enough for the remarkable work you did on the restoration and resurrection of my ancestor’s portrait. The outcome is truly phenomenal and something I never thought I’d see. To think it was just inches from the dumpster! Looking at it now, one would hardly believe the way it looked when I first showed it to you – from the endless layers of paint, to the deplorable backing, and disgraceful over painting- you truly performed a miracle. Your expertise and patience reversed what appeared to be a simply hopeless situation. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results."
