One of my biggest joys has always been visiting artists’ studios to witness the creative process first-hand. The way the easel is placed to capture the light coming into the studio, the way the canvas is prepared, the way the brushes are placed in order of their bristly thickness. Or the way the shapeless clay on the table becomes a solid form and transforms into bronze to live endlessly in time, with aging patina as its only time clock.
 
My efforts are in making artists’ works visible beyond their studios and making their art directly accessible to collectors. Each artist and curatorial project will be featured in a catalog presentation on the artists page.
