After completing her masters qualification in the conservation of Easel painting at the University of Cambridge Pia is beginning an internship in the painting conservation department at the National Museum of Wales. The QEST scholarship will support Pia through this internship.
This internship will equip Pia with the knowledge and skills needed to continue on into a career as an easel painting conservator. Working on a number of paintings from National Museum of Wales’ collection will help her to build upon her current conservation skills and knowledge as well as consolidating those she learned during her studies.
Pia is also a painter and will also develop these skills alongside her conservation studies. She hopes to continue her training through various painting conservation projects with the aim of becoming an Accredited Easel Painting Conservator (ACR).
