“And when all else has gone, art remains."
— A God In Ruins
While perhaps one of the least utilitarian furnishings in the home, art is often the most personal and special. What is on your walls should resonate, and bring you joy — every day. I help clients (and their designers) to meet this goal by assisting them in acquiring art that is accessible both aesthetically and within budget.
The manner in which I work with clients is highly personalized—meaning that it is a custom process whether you are interested in just one piece of art or art for the entire house. Selecting original art for your home should be an enjoyable, organic, and enlightening process; and I work closely with clients to make that happen. Art services include consultation, procurement, and placement with a strong focus on original pieces from local (Chicago and its environs) artists as well as found and vintage pieces from my own inventory.
The availability of original art via the Internet has exploded over the last few years. There now exists myriad websites that offer both art auctions and direct purchase, but navigating the sites and selecting pieces can quickly become a "rabbit hole" of confusion and uncertainty. I assist clients in finding on-line art pieces to start, or add to, their collection, with special attention on curating pieces that can work together in one room or as a salon or gallery wall.
