ARE YOU A "COLLECTOR"?
Part of the reason I do commissions the way that I do (see FAQs) is because I don't think art collecting should just be for art history nerds or rich people #artisforeveryone. I want to help people who are simply moved by my work (even if they can't explain why) to feel connected to it's creation and knowledgable about my process and the creative process in general. It's as much an experience as it is a purchase. And afterwards I hope clients feel empowered to seek out new art experiences and feel like they belong there. This guide, ART COLLECTING: WHERE TO START, covers the basics of starting an art collection from an artist's point of view. It is for the beginner. The person feeling the art but nervous to take the next step. It covers topics including figuring out what you love, galleries, auctions and alternative spaces, buying art online and working with art consultants. I think it's time we normalize art collecting and take the pressure off, don't you?
