HOT OF THE PRESSES!
I am so thrilled and grateful for the wonderful article about me and my new venture appearing in the March issue of Paper City Magazine Dallas. Many thanks to Home Design Editor Rebecca Sherman for shepherding the piece through the editorial process, her research and her lovely writing. And with Michelle Aviña's deft creative direction and Pär Bengtsson's gorgeous photography, there was no way it couldn't be smashing.

CONNOISSEUR FOR HIRE
After 30 years as an advertising creative executive in New York, London and Houston, I've launched a new endeavor, a new buying experience. Clients, with an appointment, may visit my Fair Park loft cum showroom to peruse, and learn about, a myriad of vintage design objects, ceramics, collectibles, art and editions, and a library of fashion, art, and photography books. From architect designed tableware to near impossible to find fashion and design collaborations, my “stock” is a reflection of my lifetime of collecting and ever evolving taste and interests.
Whether you need a special gift from $250 to $12,500 or want to add to your own collection, your purchase will likely be unavailable anywhere else in Texas, and maybe the nation.
In addition to "retail" sales, I work directly with interior designers to create the depth and texture that can make a room sing, pulling from my current inventory or gathering items to order for a particular project from my international network of resources.
This fall I began a partnership with Donghia Dallas, providing thoughtful accessories for their Design Center showroom and an every changing pop up shop of unique and storied objects and books. It is all, of course, for sale.
I plan to host salon-style gatherings with presentations from experts in the fields of art, design, interior decor and collecting. And I am currently developing my own exclusive objects and tableware in collaboration with artist friends and colleagues.
Watch this space for updates and happenings. And feel free to to contact me by email or phone. And of course, I’d love you to visit me in my loft/showroom for a poke around, a coffee, and some interesting conversation.
