"For as long as I can remember, I’ve been drawn to art. In art school, I was so fascinated by the works I was given to copy that I had to know more. That’s when I decided to study art history. Not surprisingly, when I arrived in Paris for the first time, I ran to the Louvre on the very first day. This amazing museum reminds us that art has thousands of stories to tell: about the artists and how they created their masterpieces; about the people and places they portrayed, and the times they lived in. Sharing these stories, as a way to spark a visitor’s curiosity, is a constant source of inspiration."
