Long Business Description

I am the Founder of AN EYE FOR ART, LLC. I am an independent art advisor, and avid art collector. Since founding my company, I have assisted both corporate and individual clients with art acquisitions.

Recent projects include the coordination and placement of a major commissioned portrait for an important think-tank (where I worked directly with artists Derek Fordjour, Tim Okamura and Lava Thomas, who each submitted a proposal for consideration); I am currently working on another commissioned project for a private-label wine company where I am leveraging my artist contacts for the label design of a commemorative Kamala Harris wine release.

For my individual collector clients, I have placed important pieces by artists such as Radcliffe Bailey.

I am affiliated with San Francisco’s Museum of the African Diaspora (MoAD) - I am an official “MoAD Ambassador” and have served on their Afropolitan Ball Gala Host Committee. I am also a member of ArtTable (the foremost professional organization dedicated to advancing the leadership of women in the visual arts) and the New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA).

I regularly attend the major art fairs with VIP entry for priority exhibition access in order to better serve my clients by providing them a “first-look” at available artwork. These fairs include the Armory Show in NYC, Zonamaco in Mexico City, EXPO Chicago, Art Basel Miami, Pulse Miami, Untitled San Francisco & Miami, PArC in Lima, Peru, Frieze Fairs, FOG Design + Art, among others.
