TESTIMONIALS




“It is a privilege to work with Elizabeth on building my art collection. Working with her has been key, in terms of getting access to in-demand, emerging artists, many of whom I would not have found on my own. I’ve learned so much from her in the process. Not only does she have great taste, but she is also extremely knowledgeable and has an excellent sense of value and market direction.”

—Jennifer Fan,  fund manager



“Collaborating with Elizabeth on our big scrim project was a snap. She negotiated the needs of all the various parties in a way that kept me free to focus on the aesthetics. She made the process smooth and easy, and I look forward to working with her again.”

—David Salle, artist



“I am so grateful to have worked with Elizabeth on a vast and complete project. Her commitment to follow through on all my requests, her attention to detail, and her professionalism have been exemplary. A project of this scale, importance, and urban prominence represents a big responsibility for everyone involved, especially me, and Elizabeth's assistance and advice has been invaluable.”

—Michael Craig-Martin, artist



“Elizabeth knows the art world, inside and out, her connections and contacts are literally limitless, and her taste is always spot-on and impeccable. She is not only willing to advise, but she also fights for her clients. I’ve made all my art purchases and art investments with Elizabeth, and I haven’t regretted a single one. Not only does she see the aesthetic value of an artwork, but she also considers its investment quality and its long-term potential. In one example, we fell in love with a work at an art fair, but was told that it was sold out; Elizabeth had the work commissioned, direct from artist and his representation, and had it perfectly made for, and installed in my space; all at a price better than I could have possibly hoped for. She pays attention to all the details, makes sure that everything goes as it should, and never defers responsibility. Elizabeth is the consummate professional, and I cannot recommend her more highly.”
