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.

Dominika is a visual artist who has lived in Scotland, Singapore and the Czech Republic. She graduated from Critical and Contextual Studies + Contemporary Art Practice, with a speciality in Traditional Printmaking, at the Robert Gordon University in Scotland. Among others, she gained working experience at the Tyler Print Institute in Singapore and worked as a docent at a National Heritage Chateau in the Czech Republic. Dominika travels frequently and is always curious to visit all the local galleries and museums. As a docent, she is enthusiastic about telling those stories that manage to link places, human histories and works of art together. She also finds that teaching about art and its history greatly overlaps with her practice of a visual artist, enriching one another and giving her the opportunity to share yet another perspective on art - a perspective learnt through making visual artwork herself.
