Betty Fiske

Betty Fiske is an accomplished artist as well as paper conservator.  Betty began her career as a printer.  Before she discovered conservation, Betty obtained her Bachelor and Master of Fine Arts degrees, specializing in printmaking.  For a decade she worked in printing studios, taught printmaking, and curated print collections, including work on the catalogue raisonné for Robert Motherwell's prints. Betty was inspired to pursue conservation training by Marilyn Weidner with whom she worked prior to her acceptance in WUDPAC. Betty received her Master's of Science in Art Conservation and specialized in paper under paper conservator Anne Clapp's guidance.  From there she spent 11 years as a paper conservator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Betty devoted herself to Asian printmaking and paper studies, conducting research and leading many study trips to Japan and Southeast Asia, acquiring expertise that she generously shared with students and fellow conservators.  From 1992 through July 2008 she was paper conservator at Winterthur and an adjunct faculty member for WUDPAC.  According to one of her students "Betty supported, encouraged, inspired, and taken me under her wing from the beginning and essentially helped to shape my entire future.  I feel very humbled to have had the opportunity to have her as my mentor and realize that it would take a lifetime to attain the vast wealth of knowledge and experience that she has."

John Krill

John Krill retired in 2008 after 32 years of teaching and service as paper conservator for Winterthur and an adjunct faculty member for WUDPAC.  John received his Master of Arts in Art History from Penn State and a diploma in Conservation from the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University.  Before his long and distinguished career at Winterthur, he worked as assistant curator of Prints and Drawings and as paper conservator at the Baltimore Museum of Art (1971-73), and paper conservator at the National Gallery of Art (1973-76).  John has served as guest curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum (1987) for the exhibition English Artists' Paper: Renaissance to Regency; as guest lecturer in Durham, England at the 500th Anniversary of papermaking in Great Britain in 1988; and helped plan the program for the 1999 international conference Looking at Paper: Evidence & Interpretation held in Toronto. He was co-organizer of the international group Training & Education in Paper Conservation that has met annually since 2003. John authored the landmark book, English Artists' Paper, now in its second edition (2002).  John recently received the AIC Sheldon and Caroline Keck Award for teaching excellence.  One of his students, best summarizes that “John Krill epitomizes that rare mixture of talent, passion, and intellect governed by integrity and authentic love for the field." ​
