About

We are both artists with a love of old homes. Patrick a painter, Joyce a photographer. An early interest in photography led me to pursue degrees in photojournalism and art history from Syracuse University. It was my first day of work at a Sag Harbor photo gallery, that I met Patrick. He had moved to the East End of Long Island (a magnet for artists), also known as the Hamptons, after graduating from the University of Minnesota with a Masters degree in Fine Arts, some years earlier.

While seriously pursuing his painting, Patrick was making a living building cabinets and restoring homes. Soon after we met, I joined the business.

I was drawn to the idea of working together; combining our creativity with a love of old homes. Being our own boss allows us to make time for our first love - our fine art (hence the business name). Our first project together was in a 1790 whaling captain’s former home, in the heart of Sag Harbor. Our client was an original “Cosmo girl” - now a successful mystery writer.

A honeymoon trip through New England would inspire us to make a permanent move Downeast. In 2001 we purchased an 8- acre farm in Perry, Maine - on Boyden’s; the easternmost lake in the U.S. Since then we have been restoring our circa 1893 home and it was featured in the July 2009 issue of Old-House Interiors.
