Isabella Walker

Isabella Walker is an emerging paintings conservator currently completing a Master of Cultural Materials Conservation at the Grimwade Centre. In 2015 she completed a Bachelor of Arts with First-Class Honours at the University of Melbourne, majoring in English and Art History. She is currently completing a minor thesis that examines the links that can be drawn between the history of cultural materials conservation and its future. She is particularly interested in the way in which defining principles that once served to validate the academic rigour of the profession may now limit the evolution and diversification of the industry.
