Do you have damaged artwork? Dirty yellow paintings or chips out of a vase? Broken frames or flaking paint? We can fix it for you!

Frame Factory is now proud to offer Art Restoration services!

Kay Johnson has joined our team to help us help you. After completing her BFA at Wayne State University, where her focuses were on art history as well as studio art, she then apprenticed and was employed by Kenneth B. Katz of Detroit, for seven years. Katz is a Graduate of The Cooperstown Graduate Program in the Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (now Art Conservation Department at Buffalo State College). During her career as a conservator she has completed many projects for The University of Michigan, Wayne State University, The Flint Institute of Art, The Kalamazoo Institute of Art, The Saginaw Art Museum, The Cranbrook Art Museum, The Detroit Historical Museum, and Pewabic Pottery.

Kay’s training has prepared her to offer you the finest details in conservation restoration; from cleaning and inpainting to sculpting and patching, on most of your art works. Focusing on paintings, frames and objects does not mean that we can’t do more! Bring it in and have us take a look; our problem solving skills can handle almost any of your predicaments!
