Monique Poullot (b. 1961) began training in the style of Bernard Ouchard, and went on to study at the School of Lutherie and Bow-making in Mirecourt, Vosges. After 24 years with her mentor, she perfected her craft under Jean Marc Panhaleux, master bow-maker, in Lille. Throughout this time Monique took valuable advice from Stephane Thomachot, a master bow-maker of global renown, and further refined her skills. Monique set up her own workshop at the foot of Mont Blanc in 2012, where she has found the tranquility required to successfully pursue her craft.
