Collecting art should be a fun and rewarding experience. Today's art world, however, is complex, global, and fast-moving, making it hard for a non-professional to keep pace. As an art advisor, my role is to help a collector navigate this world, to find works of art that bring joy to their homes and are smart investments as well. I provide one-on-one art advisory and art brokerage services to a diverse range of art collectors, from new to experienced collectors.
