"I love my job because every experience with an art object is different. I find inspiration as much in the people I meet, as in the masterpieces we see together. Each tour is unique because I’m with someone new, someone who has their own perspective, curiosity, and interests. That’s enriching intellectually, but also very life affirming, from a human point of view. I always leave the museum with a new story to share or another idea to develop. It is a never-ending quest, and that’s the beauty of this kind of work.
Being in a small group allows us to bond with genuine conversation. The relationship we create during those few hours is truly valuable. I find it extremely rewarding to have meaningfully shared culture and beauty with another person!"
One of my favorite places in Paris is the Furstensberg Square, where the Delacroix museum is. This square is truly charming and authentically Parisian. It takes me back to the 19th century, as it appears in the wonderful movie The Age of Innocence.
Margaux was born and raised in Paris. She's been exploring museums and other cultural institutions since she was a child. When she has time between two tours, she loves to enjoy a quiet moment reading in the lovely Luxembourg garden. Her mother is a specialist in Old Master painting, and she instilled in her a passion for art, teaching her about history from a young age. Margaux worked in auction houses for seven years, while also organizing tours in Parisian neighborhoods and teaching Art History. She then realized her true passion was for sharing knowledge, so she decided to become a full-time Paris guide.
