Rare Book Bookbinder in private practice working in the conservation and preservation of paper and leather materials.
Having more than 20k hours in the field, I worked for Etherington Conservation Services and directly with Don Etherington as an apprectice for five years. The last four years, I worked for the Preservation Services – Special Collections and University Archives, at UNC Greensboro, restoring and conserving their rare book collection. I decided to proceed with my career as a solo at the same time I moved to the Greater Los Angeles area in 2017. This transition came to my life in a very natural manner; books and arts are my companion since my very young ages, as well as my entrepreneur’ s side.
Through all these years, I have been able to put together the skills I acquired in conservation and restoration of books, my academic background – BA in Museology and MA in Art History – in addition to my proficiency as an artist in acrylics and watercolors, to correctly conserve and restore the outer and inner of books.
I have a portfolio in a pdf format with some relevant works I have performed on book restoration and conservation since 2006. If you like to receive it in your email I will be glad to do it. Please send me an email to triadbookbinding @ yahoo.com
I’m a very creative person, extremely meticulous with great organization skills. Besides my passion for books, I love genealogy. I have a blog about my family genealogy from Azores and Brazil where I share my discoveries and help others finding their family ancestors.
