After graduating in 1981, I served in the French army. My dedication to service led me directly to the tourism and service industry where I have been a guide for the past 10 years. And as a true native of France, I have the natural ability to reveal the history and culture of my country by creating memorable experiences for my clients.
I also bring with me a passion for art. I discovered the joy of painting when I was given a painting set on my eighth birthday - It was love at first sight! I continued to refine my artistic talent, under a Belgium artist in Antwerpen, while I traveled across Europe buying art and antiques. After many years managing my own antiques and art gallery in Paris, I ventured to the United States in 1999.
Since then, I have returned to Paris and I balance my time cross-continent as a professional guide and a listed artist.
A Recent Review of this guide
Patrice arrive 5 minutes before scheduled time and met us as desribed. He then went over plans for day. Very informative of points of interest. Had pictures of area from original era allowing us to see transition over time. Was very supportive and showed interest in making our day the best possible experience. Great way to see Paris for 1st time.
