A Last Look

{“Georgia O’Keefe: Living Modern,” Brooklyn Museum}

So…I think I owe you an explanation. As you might have noticed, I’ve stopped blogging for a while now. In summer 2017, I left my job at the Brooklyn Museum and moved to London to get my MSc in art and archaeological conservation. That’s right– I’m no longer a curator, but a conservator! A scientist who spends much of her time in a lab, looking at things under a microscope, trying to understand what the objects from our past are trying to tell us if only we listen hard enough to the signs they show.

This was always my favourite part. It’s the reason why I believe I’ll always be, in my heart of hearts, an art historian before a curator or a conservator, and a writer before anything else.

Having said that, I always knew that this blog would only remain active insofar as I remained active in the field of curation (hence the name of this blog.) And now that chapter of my life as “a museum girl in New York” has ended in favour of this new life in Europe, filled with archaeological excavations, chemical analyses, and treatments of objects from all over the world.

Maybe I’ll come back to New York one day as a different kind of “museum girl.” But until then, I’m going to focus my recreational writing on on more fictional pursuits. If I ever come out with a book, I promise to let you be the first to know!

Thank you for coming along with me for these past two years.

Love,
