Isabella Boorman

Isabella was awarded a Pantyfedwen grant to study her MA in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art, London. “As someone who has a true love (and genuine obsession!) for art history, having the opportunity to study at the world’s leading centre for the study of art history and conservation was a life changing experience. I am incredibly grateful to The James Pantyfedwen Foundation for their support, which gave me confidence in my own abilities, and without which it would have been financially impossible for me to attend. I have worked for institutions such as the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice and the Royal Academy of Arts, London, and since completing my MA I have been fortunate enough to return to Wales to work in my current role as Curator of Art Exhibitions at Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum Wales, Cardiff. I am extremely proud and committed to promoting the art, culture and language of Wales”. Her first exhibition as curator (being Sidney Nolan and Graham Sutherland: A Sense of Place) is currently held at Oriel y Parc gallery, St Davids, Pembrokeshire.
