Camille Turner-Hehlen obtained her BA in Art History with a minor in Chemistry from the University of Zurich in 2020. For her bachelor’s thesis she analyzed the materials and techniques Vincent van Gogh used in drawings in a particular sketchbook, which she then attempted to reconstruct. She travelled to Amsterdam, London, and the USA to examine 23 of the 27 known drawings. Camille was part of a team of students who curated an exhibition on Italian drawings on display at the Zurich Kunsthaus in 2020. In 2017, she undertook a preprogram internship, alongside her studies, at the private practice of Daniel Fabian and Joan Samuels in Stäfa, Switzerland. This past summer, she worked alongside Wendy Crawford in London, Ontario, for her summer internship where she further developed her conservation skills.
