Paper and Photograph Conservation
Our practice is dedicated to practical and ethical treatment and imaging solutions for cultural heritage.
Jennifer McGlinchey Sexton is a graduate-level trained conservator. She provides conservation treatment and expertise for photographs and works of art on paper. Her studio places a special focus on imaging, particularly UV/Visible fluorescence. A member of Mountain States Art Conservation, she works in collaboration with conservators of varied specialties.
Trained as a fine-art photographer, Jennifer became interested in conservation as a way to blend her love of art with a curiosity about materials. After getting her graduate degree, Jennifer continued to hone her skills as a conservator and photographer in positions at museums, regional centers, and private practices throughout the United States.
Jennifer is a Professional Associate member of the American Institute for Conservation, a peer-reviewed status. Her practice is guided by the AIC Code of Ethics and Guidelines for Practice. She is an active member of the conservation community.
