In 2015 Artnresto launched as a brand. On the site, Founder Paula Mickute shared restored paintings and created art.
In 2020 when covid-19 hit, she decided to transform the brand and build a community hub. She organised virtual art classes and built an environment for people to share art, thoughts, interests and aspirations. When restrictions eased off, it became hard to keep everyone involved as most people wanted real-live events. Therefore, this activity slowly disappeared but created space for new opportunities.
As a qualified conservator, Paula saw a gap in the heritage sector. She noticed that conservators have to create reports which require a lot of time. Therefore with a team of 3 people, she built a reporting tool for heritage professionals.
