Who we are
Valentine Walsh invented EasySections because Clients are rarely willing to pay for cross-section analysis to be carried out on paintings of low value yet the conservator needs to have as much information on the nature of the painting before and during treatment. EasySections allow the conservator to make effective cross-sections in a private studio and are used in museums and training institutions worldwide.
Valentine is the founder of the Pigment Project and a leading conservator in the UK with long and extensive experience in the conservation, restoration and scientific analysis of paintings. After an apprenticeship with the Chief Conservator for the National Portrait Gallery and an internship at the Kunstmuseum, Basel, she set up her own studio in 1979 and works on paintings from 1300 to present. An advocate for her profession, Valentine is a longstanding member of national and international conservation bodies promoting the work of the profession and the conservator in the UK and overseas.
