I am a career-long artist representative working on creative collaborations between artists and global brands, agencies, and media companies. We guarantee excellence with every project, regardless of budget or scale, valuing the integrity of the process and the outcome equally. Here's my story:
When I graduated from Wellesley College as a Philosophy major, I decided that the most practical use of my theory-rich education would be to move to Waitsfield, Vermont, work in the Sugarbush rental shop, and ski my heart out. Eventually, and with considerable reluctance, I found my way to NYC, where I soon enrolled in the Arts Management graduate program at Columbia University. During this unsettling discovery period, I found my comfort zone within a growing social circle of emerging New York painters and photographers. Studio visits soon became a regular thing, which turned out to be a brilliant way to learn the language of art criticism and commentary. Eventually, I started curating pop-up shows and selling work to young collectors and corporate buyers interested in acquiring meaningful, affordable art.
After graduation, I landed my first advertising job with Ogilvy's art-buying team. Meetings with agents and photographers from all over the world and walking those red-carpeted hallways with a carefully curated handful of portfolios to share with creative teams were the central part of my day. As it turned out, it was the perfect foundational experience I needed to launch my agency. In addition to representing some exceptional creative talent, including Matthew Rolston, Mary Ellen Mark, and Dana Lixenberg in the early years, I also had what I considered a capstone moment a few years back, working as an agent with Magnum Photos. This legacy-rich cooperative inspired my love of narrative photography long ago––indeed, the offer I could not refuse.
And now, I am humbled and proud to represent world-renowned artists Tina Barney, Asger Carlsen, Sharon Core, Mitch Epstein, Katy Grannan, Tommy Kha, Barbara Probst, and Laurie Simmons. Our agency is committed to making exceptional visual content guaranteed to cut through the dizzying clutter of mediocre visual content that bombards us daily.
If you're interested in collaborating with one of our artists on your next marketing or editorial project, please pick up the phone (still my preferred method of communication) or email me. We'd love to hear from you!
