About Troy Amuso
Troy entered the world of art restoration in 1977 working as a studio apprentice in southern Westchester County, New York, under highly respected Dutch art conservator, Yan Vanderviver. It was that unique opportunity that sparked Troy’s passion in the craft of art conservation, setting him on a path towards an unyielding career as a fine art oil painting conservator from a young age.
From 1977 to 1995 Troy held studio positions focused on the preservation of fine art in New York, Connecticut and Los Angeles. It was during those formative years that Troy earned a respected reputation for his conservation work from art collectors, art galleries, and private museums throughout the North East and West Coast.
In 1996 Troy and his wife, Denise DiGrigoli, founded Troy Fine Art Services, an art conservation studio modeled on the philosophy that each client and painting is unique and should receive only exceptional personal attention. By maintaining a small studio approach, you can always be assured of who is working on your painting.
As principal conservator, Troy believes that all restorations should be as noninvasive as possible while only performing processes necessary and vital to revive a painting as close to its original state as possible. Troy maintains a strict code of ethics in line with the American Institute for Conservation, and ensures that all work is archival and reversible. He lectures regularly on the cause and effect of art restoration to groups and organizations throughout New England. Troy Fine Art is located in Fairfield, CT, and Troy and Denise welcome clients to their studio for restoration evaluations by appointment while also visiting clients at their home, or where the art is sited.
