For me personally, I’ll often look for art when we are travelling either in the UK or abroad. I also attend exhibitions, open studios, art/craft fairs and I’m far more likely to purchase art if I’ve met the artist. I think social media is also really important and I’ll follow artists so that I can see who’s putting what out there.
For clients, I will often hook them up with artists I know. I have relationships with an eclectic mix of artists so can often match the client with an artist to suit their personality and interior design style.

I’m always very excited to put the work of local artists into the homes of my clients #shoplocal. You can’t beat pop-up art exhibitions and local galleries - seeing a variety of collections up close with their varying styles and mediums broadens the chance of finding something that really hits the spot. Meeting the artists is invaluable too, especially if there is an opportunity to commission a piece specifically for my project – I can chat through the possibilities there and then to get the ball rolling.
I also increasingly value the opportunity provided by Instagram and other social media channels to get to know brands and the artists behind them. I’m basically matchmaking my clients to art(ists) I think they’ll resonate with.
"...social media content gives you so much more. Incorporating a piece of art into your home is personal, so getting a real sense of an artist’s values, approaches and inspiration is brilliant." Sarah
