Anne has completed student internships and professional fellowships at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and at the National Gallery of Canada. She has worked as Conservator at the Centre de Conservation du Québec (CCQ) for six years, including five years in the Paintings laboratory and one year with the Polychrome Sculpture team, for the on-site documentation and conservation of the historical interior of sculpted, painted and gilded wood of the Ursulines' Chapel in Quebec city.

She has worked in Switzerland and in France for nearly three years, principally as collaborator for the Ateliers CREPHART, where she acquired professional experience in the Conservation of Wall Paintings, Painted Architectural Finishes and Monumental Polychrome Sculpture, as well as in Architectural Paint Research. Her experience included documentation and treatment of murals and monumental sculptures, painted in a variety of media (lime, casein, oil paint, true fresco) on diverse types of wall supports (lime, plaster, mortar, stone, marouflaged canvas). The Lausanne Cathedral (conservation and documentation of the meridional painted portal), the Chillon Castle (conservation and documentation of the Chapel), the Saint-Gervais Temple (Architectural paint and materials research, documentation  and reconstitution of the original Renaissance period), a house in Estavayer-le-Lac (uncovering, documentation and conservation treatment of 16th century "grisaille" murals in the main room), and the Parisian churches of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Saint-Merry (documentation and diagnostic study of the interior/exterior) are the main historic buildings and projects to which she contributed.

Professional Experience

Team and Collaborators

Since 2014, Anne is employed as conservator in the public sector. As a result, the volume of private contracts she can accept is reduced. She performs most tasks by herself. 

Previously, her team was composed of conservator assistants, field manager and qualified technicians for large scale projects (on-site, overversized paintings, high-volume projects).  

Professionnals from other fields, architects, ingeneers, specialised craftsworkers and technicians, conservators from other specialisations, scientists, historians, have been consulted or called for specific tasks: modifications to building infrastructures for preventive purpouses, reconstitution of partially destroyed sections in historic interiors, conservation of objects and furniture forming integral parts of interiors, historic research, sample preparation and analysis, dating, attribution, etc.
