    Gersende de Foucaud was born in Paris in the 80's, and immersed herself since childhood in the beauty of the treasures of the French museums of Le Louvre, Quai d'Orsay, Carnavalet… with a mix of the new aesthetic of the Mangas. At the age of 11, she discovered her gift of drawing and painting portraits and cartoons. After studying at the Art Decoratifs of Paris, she put her career on hold to start a family, but soon returned to her passion for the creative arts. Mirroring her life as an international traveler, she pays tribute to the most famous cities in the world in 2015 and 2016.
