My profession is art conservation, specifically paper.
How do I say: “I’m an art conservator” and “I’m a paper conservator”

Ni hao Mary! “art” is “yì shù pǐn”, and “conservator” is “guǎn lǐ yuán”, so there you go:

wǒ shì yī gè yì shù pǐn guǎn lǐ yuán= I’m an art conservator.

But I’m not sure what you mean about “paper consevator”. Could you let me know what does “paper” mean here? Xie xie ni…

Ni hao. I specialize in fixing works of art on paper and documents on paper. Water colors, pastels, that kind of thing.

I see! So that is “zhǐ zhāng wén wù bǎo hù yuán”.

Your job is very important!
