Native New Yorker Daisy de Plume has lived in Paris for 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, zigzagging hunters between Jardin du Luxembourg + Fontaine St Michel, the Pantheon + St Sulpice. THATRue is entirely self-guided. THAT continues to grow, with the creation of THATKid in 2015, a series of Spot the Difference, Connect the Dot exercises supplementing the original Louvre hunt.
