Mattias' Journey to France

Current Location

Paris, France

Hi, I'm Mattias, and I'm originally from Santiago, Chile. I'm so excited for you to join me as I study ancient watercolor painting techniques, plant science and scientific illustration in France!


I've just arrived in Paris from where I currently live in Bogotá, Colombia. These are my observations and first impressions of the city so far!


My experience taking a nighttime walk through Paris included seeing fantastic monuments, visiting an old bookstore, eating crêpes and stumbling across a chocolate shop!

Field Notes

An introduction to one of the most interesting trees found growing in Paris, the ginkgo!


Join me in exploring some of the exhibits at the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle (Paris' natural history museum).
