  Fine Arts Collection Management. From November 2004 - to January of 2007 I was contracted by the Executor of the Estate of Toni Onley, one of Canadaís most beloved painters. Toni's collection is approximately 10,000 pieces, most of which were stored in a haphazard fashion. The attitude of many artists is that they can always produce more work. I created an archival storage facillity, implemented an inventory process, and launched several legacy projects, including donations and exhibitions. We installed the ACR Smart Reader Plus Data logger to properly assess humidity and temperature control.


A Vancouver artist widely known for his distinctive landscapes, Toni Onley was born in 1928 on the Isle of Man and was educated in England and Mexico.


Artist S. Brooke Anderson was born in Vancouver, British Columbia and raised in the southern California desert. Both of these very different landscapesóthe rain forest and the desertófind expression in her work today.
