The daughter of a sculptor, Marie has been surrounded by art ever since she was born. A native Parisienne, she holds an undergraduate degree in history and art history, with a specialty in iconography and French and Flemish paintings from the 16th to the 18th centuries. She also holds a Master's degree in museology from the Ecole du Louvre and one in Art History from the Sorbonne. She currently works for the French National Art History Institute on special cultural events. Since she loves literature, ballet, theatre, opera, jazz clubs, and classical concerts—she has been playing the piano since she was 9—Paris and its artistic life are a perfect fit.
Marine comes from Marseille in the South of France but has been living in Paris for 12 years. A licensed tour guide since 2014, she first studied Art History at the Ecole du Louvre and then History at Nanterre University, from which she was awarded a Master's degree. She also spent a semester in Italy, at the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa. In addition to her academic work in history and art history, she has a diploma in enology from the Wine and Spirit Education Trust. Before becoming a tour guide, Marine worked for museums and art foundations. Now, in addition to guiding, she teaches History of Architecture at the Ecole du Louvre. She is passionate about architecture, the history of fashion and street art.
