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.
