Saint John, NB, Canada
Claire Titus is a graduate of the University of Toronto (Art History, 1986) and the Art Conservation Techniques Program of Sir Sandford Fleming College (1990). She completed internships and post-graduate fellowships in paper conservation at the Library and Archives Canada (1989-90), Canadian Conservation Institute (1990-92) and National Gallery of Canada (1992-93). After six years as a conservator at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal (1995-2001), Claire relocated to Saint John New Brunswick with her husband and two sons. In Saint John she has worked both privately and, since 2004, as a conservator at the New Brunswick Museum. Beginning in 2006, and with the help of many others, Claire has worked towards the completion of the conservation treatment and exhibition of Miller Brittain’s Saint John Tuberculosis Hospital Mural Cartoons. Along the way, Claire has enjoyed the ways in which her work as a conservator has deepened her appreciation of art, and, has fostered connections with established and emerging conservators, members of a curious public and experts from a range of disciplines. The conservation of the Saint John Tuberculosis Mural Cartoons has been an unendingly rewarding undertaking and it is immensely gratifying to have reached its conclusion.
