BA Sc & BA Arts, MA Cultural Materials Conservation
Eden joined ICS as Graduate Paintings Conservator in 2018, following the completion of her Masters of Cultural Materials Conservation in Melbourne. Since joining ICS Eden has continued to develop strong skills across a wide variety of projects, including analysis and conservation treatment of easel paintings ranging from the mid-eighteenth century to modern contemporary works, wooden gilded frames, wall murals and other historically significant objects.
During her Masters of Cultural Materials Conservation degree, Eden completed an internship at The Hague, in the Netherlands. At The Hague, she undertook assessment and treatment work, including the examination and documentation of a thirteenth-century wood panel painting of Floris V in situ. She also assisted with the treatment of artworks requiring removal, un-stretching, rolling, re-stretching, and transportation.
Eden’s main areas of specialisation are easel painting conservation and frame conservation. At ICS, some of her project highlights include Portrait of Emily Phillips (National Trust NSW), the Butterfly Room (State Theatre), Fremantle Prison, Portrait of Norman Holtermann (State Library of NSW), and White Rabbit Gallery artworks.
Eden is an active member of AICCM and ICOM and attends conferences and workshops on a regular basis.
