Jennifer Beetem is an emerging art conservator, artist, art historian and web designer. This portfolio site will relaunch in late 2022. Please be patient with display errors here as I experiment with display code and migrate content to the new website.

Art Conservation

The climate crisis motivates me to pursue training in art conservation. My pre-program progress has included internships in the conservation of paper and photographs, objects conservation, objects, textiles, architectural materials, field conservation of archaeological materials and preventive conservation.
