Tyler has a deep appreciation for vintage figures and the artisans that came before him. He carefully studied techniques used by craftsmen like Theodore Mack, George and Glenn McElroy, and Frank Marshall to achieve a seamless restoration that pays tribute to the figures’ original builder. Because of Tyler's ability to emulate previous makers, he has become an industry leader in restorations for museums and collectors.
Before agreeing to a project, Tyler makes sure his contribution to the piece will preserve or increase the value. Whether it is a small paint touch-up or a full restoration, the value and historical integrity of the piece are Tyler's top priorities.
