We are very pleased to welcome Moya Dumville to the Paper Lab at West Lake! Moya completed her Bachelor’s Degree in History at University of King’s College, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and went on to study Chemistry and Art History at the University of Prince Edward Island. She studied Art Conservation at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, specializing in paper objects.
Moya has completed conservation internships at The Rooms Provincial Archives in St. John’s, Newfoundland and the Northeast Document Conservation Center in Andover, Massachusetts. She worked in Saint John, New Brunswick as the Post-Graduate Paper Conservation Intern on the New Brunswick Museum’s Conservation Award-winning Miller Britain Mural Cartoons. This involved working in a public gallery space, interacting with museum patrons, and carrying out treatment on a series of 9×9 foot chalk drawings on Kraft paper, created in 1941-42.
Moya has recently relocated to the Syracuse area, and is very happy to be joining the West Lake team.
