Kristian graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History from the University of British Columbia in 2015. During her studies, she published a research paper with the UBC Undergraduate Journal of Art History and served a term as the Executive Secretary of the UBC Art History Students’ Association.
Prior to relocating to Toronto, Kristian was the Registration Assistant at the Vancouver Art Gallery. By working directly with the permanent art collection, Kristian gained experience in exhibition installations, loans and acquisitions procedures, and art storage and handling practices. Her time at the Vancouver Art Gallery fostered a knowledge and appreciation of both historical and contemporary Canadian art.
She will commence her Masters degree in Art History at the University of Toronto in the fall of 2017 and is pleased to contribute her prior experience and passion for art history to the Heffel team
