Julie Fitzgerald ACR
Hello! my name is Julie, I am an experienced conservator of flat works on paper and parchment. I initially had the privilege of studying paper and parchment conservation for 4 years at Camberwell College of Arts, London. After graduation I worked in paper conservation in Australia. I was honoured to receive a John Paul Getty Advanced scholarship in the conservation of works on paper/parchment in the USA for a couple of great formative years. After a year or so working in London for private conservators, I accepted the position to run paper conservation at TePapa, the National Museum of NZ, and spent over 8 happy years there. On return to the UK I took time for continuous professional development, undertaking a Masters in English and French historic Interiors, immersing myself in the styles and presentation of 18th century works of art. I set up my own Independent Paper and Parchment Conservation Studio, Fitzgerald Conservation, which operates from Sevenoaks, Kent in 2001.
