Before launching Troy Fine Art Services in 1997, Troy began his career 20 years prior at age 14 as a studio apprentice under the highly respected Dutch art conservator, Yan Vanderviver. Under Mr Vanderviver, Troy’s studio skills progressed quickly. He would go on to become Mr. Vandervivers number one assistant in the preservation of master art works for private collectors as well as some of the most prestigious art institutions in the country. The experience he gained from working with such an esteemed member of the art world set a solid foundation for his career in the arts. After studying fine art at Pace University and the School of Visual Arts in New York, Troy went on to hold positions at high level galleries and framing studios in New York, Connecticut and Los Angeles.
