Hello and Welcome!

For the past 17 years I have been restoring and repairing violins, violas, cellos and the occasional bass. I specialize in varnish retouching and am the published author of the 1st and 2nd edition of “The Art of Violin Retouching”. In my violin restoration - repair shop, I approach each repair or restoration as a unique work of art.I carefully restore the craftsmanship and musical tone of each instrument. My business is both national and international. In addition to my violin restoration business, I teach motivational classes for school children, and hands-on experiential retouching and repair workshops for adults.

This is the original Artisan Violin TM company started in 2000. Surprisingly to me, there have been a number of individuals that have illegally done copyright infringement by using my book and the The Artisan Violin name in various forms. Please do not support these illegal acts of infringement and report them to authorities and myself, if you see them on the web or anywhere else.

Feel free to explore more of my improved website! My base is now in Port Orange, FL and still have a successful national client base via shipping USPS. This is the original Artisan Violin company started in 2000. I look forward to working with you and especially on your cherished instrument. I can usually give you a very accurate quote with just emailed photos. Just make sure they are sharp, clear, close ups of the areas in question, For restoration purposes, take photos of the top and bottom tables, ribs, scroll, pegbox and any parts you have. I can then discuss various options and choices with you!
