She is one of a team of three paintings conservators looking after a collection of approximately 7500 paintings spread across the National Gallery and the Museum of Contemporary Art. Their responsibilities include the care of the painting collection, from the basics of framing and storage, through to research and full aesthetic and structural treatments to restore damaged artworks. They ensure the paintings are safe for display in exhibitions in their own galleries, as well as those across Norway, Scandinavia and the rest of the world.
