  • Unparalleled access to traditional, modern and contemporary prints, drawings, paintings, sculptures , new media and photography from a cultivated selection of preeminent international galleries, dealers, auction houses and art fairs.
  • Privileged access to artworks in private collections and artworks unavailable in the open market.
  • Expert consultation and guidance regarding your art investment strategy based on your own aesthetic, budget, and space.
  • Comparative market research and detailed price analyses provided for making solid financial long-term investments.
  • Confidence in your purchases from the knowledge that the source, artwork, and price have all been vetted for you by an expert.
  • Full curatorial services supporting the creation of highly individualized, extraordinary, substantial art collections for a person, a family, or corporation.

My aim is to provide art collectors with all these advantages and protections so that they can focus on the pure joy of art itself, while collecting and building a living legacy. It will be a pleasure to work with you.
