Jean Grimm has been conducting Mexican Art and Culture Tours for discriminating travelers since 1995. She creates the unique itineraries only after the art, culture and archaeological sites of each region have been carefully researched and personally inspected.
Jean has a master's degree in art from New York University.
As an artist and art scholar she has developed close ties with famous Mexican artists, artisans and art collectors, and offers tour members the unusual opportunity of visiting them in their homes, work-shops and studios. Jean has lived and traveled extensively in Mexico, and truly combines a superb knowledge of art with a unique and personal love of Mexico.
Tours are escorted by Jean Grimm
