About Me

I'm a project manager and consultant based in Berlin, Germany. Born in France, I have a German Business / Communication degree and studied Art History in Paris. I am a certified business and personal coach.

In 2006, I opened my own gallery in Berlin, participating in various national and international art fairs and partnerships. From 2010 on, I have held various positions in the artworld, i.e. studio manager, gallery director and international sales manager for several international art institutions. I specialize in individual coaching of professional artists and I'm also a frequent lecturer on art management at international universities and institutions.

Maud Piquion, a young curator and art manager with great communication skills, breaks free from the conventional idea of a curator. She accomplished a rare feat of maintaining a fundamental and analytic attitude towards art and realizing art projects. I am highly inspired by her way of translating curatorial statements into exhibitions, as well as by her dynamic way of organizing projects.

Maud obviously gets her bearings on the artist and they get used to explaining themselves, thinking about what they’re doing. Thanks again Maud, I’m really glad the art world has warm and encouraging types like you involved.


Meeting with Maud Piquion turned out to be a very effective, short and to the point affair. Maud was very professional, she shot a few well-aimed questions to suss out my professional needs and off we went! We perused through my work, and in a short while, Maud came up with some pretty astute ideas about how to market my work and position it in the art scene. I came away with three concrete directions which are going to be very helpful in the long-term, and I have been happily working on two of those “assignments” ever since. On the whole, I really feel I gained a lot of insight and impetus from this discussion with Maud. I loved the brisk, no-nonsense attitude, and I’m looking forward to our next meeting.


The artist coaching with Maud was truly inspiring and empowering. Her expertise is so well-grounded that just a couple of hours with her helped clarify major questions about my career. Maud succinctly and powerfully showed how having a clear action plan is crucial to continuing what I love to do- creating works of art that truly matter. Having incredibly thorough knowledge about both the business and the art side, she gave me concrete tools to excell at the formalities of the business while staying true to my artistic identity. Her knwoledge of the rules in the art world allows you to work out concrete steps, something that, under normal circumstances, you could only learn after many years or trial and error. If you really want to advance towards your goals as an artist, I could not imagine a better guidance.

I was over all very satisfied. The coaching was very well structured and Maud s comments were very clear and to the point. She helped me to get a better picture of my own work seen from outside as well as from the view and belongings of the art-scene, and to get a better understanding of how I can present myself within this context.

I was very happy with the meeting with Maud. I think it confirmed ideas I already had and showed some new angles I did not think about before. So it made me feel I am on the right track but have to become more pro active (…) So thanks for the session.

The coaching was a very good wake-up call for me! It was a relief to be able to really talk and get advices about practice and theory, to get more confidence and to adopt a DO IT attitude, instead of thinking all the time about how and what I should be doing. The students in the art academies could really need you for that! It was also helpful to discuss the website in detail. I look forward now to moving forward with my work. Thank you Maud!


The coaching with Maud was very useful for me; I found it a nice and extremely effective meeting. Maud has the ability to get into the world of the artist very quickly and to articulate appropriate comments and ideas. With her help, I finally managed to find a clear and accessible structure for my website. Even after the coaching, she provided information such as interesting institutions or artist references. Thanks to Maud s support, I even got in touch with a performance artist and we are currently working on a cooperation. I am absolutely content about my decision to get some guidance from Maud.

Contemporary Art needs young and intelligent „Art scouts“ at eye level; specialists, who discover / spot artists, support them and bring them together with the right people. Nowadays, the protagonists of the art world are not only the artists, but also gallerists, curators, collectors, journalists; people who can see, read, buy and write. Maud can do this and does it.

The workshop gave me a new energy and boosted my ambition as an artist. It felt good to finally be able to talk freely about “taboo topics” of the art world and to realize that one is not alone with issues such as organization, networking, application, finances etc…The workshop helped me realize that as an artist I can take actions and move to improve the opportunities.

Maud Piquion’s workshops are regularly booked out in our school. The feedbacks of the students are extremely positive. The way Maud Piquion implements practical training elements in her workshops (as well as in her coachings) motivates students and helps them to feel more confident by getting an immediate result of the sessions. Thanks to her ongoing professional experience in the Artworld, Maud Piquion is able to share current facts and valuable information. We highly recommend her workshops and individual coachings.
