Jessica is an art lover. Interested in Art History since high school, she decided to study Art History at the Paris West University and later followed courses at a specialized school in art to become an Art Dealer. With an Art Expert degree, it was not enough to give a price to the priceless, so she decided to move to New York and study English at the New York University. After a few fantastic years spent on the other side of the Atlantic, meeting people from all over the world, discovering the amazing city of New York and travelling around the USA, she came back to Paris and obtained a Master's degree in Art History at the Paris West University. Jessica specialized in art of 17th century with a focus on art during the reign of Louis the XIVth. She is today a licensed tour guide. Becoming a tour guide was a way for her to combine her love for art and her love for meeting new people from all over the world.
