Native New Yorker Daisy de Plume has lived in Paris for more than a decade. As the daughter of an art historian, the Metropolitan Museum of Art was second home to Daisy as a kid. To keep her focused – and quiet! – Daisy’s mother created games with art, some of which had monetary prizes. Blending such aesthetical hoverings with entrepreneurial reward planted the seed of THATLou (Treasure Hunts At The Louvre) early on. With a degree in art history and a past in print publishing (Vanity Fair, Condé Nast Traveler), Daisy created THATLou to share her passion for art and her unique approach toward making the museum experience fun and accessible to all.
In 2013 Daisy started THATd’Or, originally commissioned by the American Friends of the Musée d’Orsay. 2014 saw the launch of THATRue (Rue=Street) consisting of three distinct hunts on the streets of the Latin Quarter. THATRue is entirely self-guided & brought to Museum hunts, unless used for birthday/hen parties or large corporate hunts. THAT continued to grow, with the creation of THATKid in 2015, a series of Botticelli Spot-the-Differences, or Michelangelo Connect-the-Dot exercises supplementing the original Louvre hunt.
In 2016 THAT team will hop the Channel to London to launch THATMuse, riding on the coat-tails of success from when the British Museum commissioned Daisy to build & host “The Art of Play” treasure hunt challenge. THATMuse will cover the British Museum, followed by the V&A and NG, to provide a London trio of hunts!
Daisy lives on the Right Bank with her Argentine husband and culturally-confused toddler, STORSH.
