Camille completed her MA at the École du Louvre (FR) with a focus on Museum Studies and the Art Market (2014). Her two thesis were titled "Historic Changes and Conditions affecting the Ceramic Market in France, from the 1950s to the present year" and "The Exhibition and the Representation of the French African Colonies at the 1900 International Exhibition in Paris." While studying, Camille worked as a Research and Sales Assistant for several fine art and design galleries in Paris. Camille obtained her BA in Art History from the University of Sussex (UK) and the Université Michel de Montaigne (FR) (2011).
