Welcome Virginie!

New conservator, Virginie Ternisien, comes to us on contract for a year from France where she recently graduated from Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne University with a Masters Degree in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Property. During her studies, Virginie had internships to conserve artifacts from the Museum of Orsay and the Louvre. She has also been involved with conservation projects at the British Museum, the Clemson Conservation Center in South Carolina (home of the Hunley), and in Egypt and Albania. Virginie is currently pursuing a Research Masters in conservation with a special interest in composite objects and, at the MAC Lab, she will be primarily responsible for treating artifacts from the Presidio La Bahia, a Spanish frontier fort located in Texas.
