Episode Thirty-Eight features Paris-born, internationally acclaimed artist and author Lilianne Milgrom. She holds two degrees from Melbourne University and an associate degree from the Academy of Art in San Francisco. She exhibits her artwork around the world and is the recipient of multiple awards and artist residencies. In 2011, she became the first authorized copyist of Gustave Courbet’s controversial 19th century painting L’Origine du Monde (The Origin of the World), which hangs in the Orsay Museum in Paris and draws over a million visitors a year. The experience inspired her to spend close to a decade researching and writing L’Origine.

Since being released just over two months ago, her novel L’Origine hit the Number One bestseller spot in two categories on amazon. Lilianne currently lives in the greater Washington, DC, area with her husband while her grown children have spread their wings and are exploring the world.

Available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads and Bookshop.
