Clients | Testimonials



As a consultant, my goal is to optimize the quality and value of selection for each client. There is no single ‘right’ direction. The art world is an infinite world of possibility. As a curator, educator and facilitator, I assist new collectors discover their aesthetic interest. For experienced collectors who have established their direction, as a conduit to specific collecting goals and management, I provide access, expertise and insight.
