Jénnifer worked as a freelance conservator before applying to the Courtauld Institute of Art, where she has completed two years of the Postgraduate Diploma in the Conservation of Easel Paintings.
Professor Aviva Burnstock describes Jénnifer as one of the most visually sensitive and engaged students. She has been given extra paintings to work on, including Still Life with Bust by Mark Gertler. Painted in the 1930s using water sensitive oils, it requires one of the most challenging treatments in the studio.
“With fee increases and without the QEST London Art History Society Scholarship, I would have to stop and save again for my final year. I’m thrilled to continue and hope to apply my learnings to English heritage easel paintings at a prestigious institution.”
