Small Antique Plaster Statue of Our Lady of Mount Carmel for a private client.

Plaster 12th Station of The Cross for St. Bruno Catholic Church, Whittier, CA.

This piece had fallen 15 feet to the floor of the church and broke into many pieces.  I re-assembled all the pieces of this puzzle and re-built and re-sculpted the missing areas and re-inforced the back.  The paint finish was replicated to match the original color scheme.

Carved Wood and Gesso Madonna and Child Jesus Statue

St. Bede the Venerable Catholic Church, La Canada-Flintridge, CA

A very old statue of unknown origin with lots of damage to the paint and the wood structure.  Large portions of the hands and wrists where missing and had to be rebuilt.  Extensive dry rot at the base was treated and a new base was constructed.  All previous, poor, attempts at restoration where removed.

All restoration completed and the statue installed in a chapel alcove in St. Bede the Venerable Catholic Church, La Canada, CA.  

Custom specialty plaster finish on all walls of the alcove.

Plaster Statue of Blessed Mother, Holy Angels Catholic Church, Arcadia, CA

A large, vintage statue made by the Daprato Studios in the 1920's had many years of dirt and damage.  This lovely piece was thoroughly cleaned and restored.  I retained and replicated as much of the original paint finish scheme as possible.
