About the advisory

consulting –––––

I am pleased to advise both seasoned and novice collectors in acquiring fine art for their collections. Areas of expertise range from modern masters to emerging talent. All media including painting and sculpture, prints and drawings, classical and contemporary photography, and new media may be of consideration. From the acquisition of one particular piece to the development of an entire collection, direction is tailored to each client’s specific goals and preferences.

As an advisor, my goal for every client is to maximize the quality and value of their choices. There is no single correct direction. The art world is a global smorgasbord, an ocean of possibility. I act as a curator, an educator and a facilitator. For new collectors, I assist them in discovering their own aesthetic responses. For experienced collectors who already have established their direction, I am the conduit to their specific collecting goals. For all clients I provide access, expertise and insight.

the process –––––

Collecting art is a magnificent journey. As on all journeys, itinerary is key. My knowledge and access to the most significant art venues offers clients an experience of visual excitement and intellectual inquiry, with an insider’s perspective. The process is personal and engaged. It involves education and exposure to international resources at the highest level including galleries, museum exhibitions, artists’ studios, art fairs, and auction houses.

the criteria –––––

Quality, condition, rarity and historical significance are the fundamental criteria in the selection of each artwork. The merit of each artwork is evaluated independently from the analysis of its investment potential. Specific choices evolve from the unique program designed with each client, beginning with their aesthetic preferences and designated budget. Client preferences may already be defined or need to be discovered. In either case, fresh insight inevitably results from the process of engaged looking and increased exposure to new artistic statements.
