George Isles was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1918 and his first interests in restoration began in the small neighborhood boatyards where the skilled craftsmen inspired an early appreciation of working with wood.

The years between those first experimental restorations and the curatorship of the fine collection now on display at the carriage house of the Museums at Stony Brook have brought George Isles gratification and also worldwide recognition of his talent.
