I had a nice couple of hours with Marilyn McMahon, Santa Barbara News Press Staff writer extraordinaire, today in office at Fine Art Conservation Laboratories. She has been writing interviews and profiles for the Lifestyle section of the newspaper for more than 35 years.
When she made the appointment to interview me, I emailed her a ton of stuff about my background (to read how I got into the art conservation field – click here). When she arrived, this lady was all business yet, affable. We started out with a tour of the art conservation lab (you can take a tour also on our home page) just to orient her. When someone comes through the lab, especially for the first time, its a bit bewildering and new but not so much for this experienced reporter. She quickly saw things she would refer to later.
After she got the low down on my background, she wanted to hear stories. One of the stories I told her was this story was about the Priceless Russian Renaissance Icon here in this video:
She was bedazzled by what we do etc so I’m hoping that it will turn into a really great write up. The interview was for the feature article of the Sunday Lifestyle Section of the Santa Barbara News Press to come out on Sunday June 3rd.
