This is why art buyers love Inspired Collecting.
“Carrie is an incredible resource who helped guide me in building a collection of pieces that reflected my interests and sensibilities. She knows the market, the dealers and the breadth of possibilities, and she can educate and inform while being flexible and open. She also brings a warmth, a personal touch and a sense of humor that enhances the process and enjoyment of buying art.”

“Carrie is professional, thoughtful and really interested in educating her clients about art. Even though Carrie has an easy going manner, she is decisive and really helps you think through a purchase. Her knowledge of art and how to appreciate it and what was going on in the market was extremely helpful. She provides a full service and even helped me hang some of my pieces when I didn't know where to place them.”

Carrie has an impeccable eye and her placement choices were perfect. Carrie is easy to work with because of her thoughtful and professional manner. I will absolutely continue to consult with her in the future.”

“Working with Kim is always a joy, and she's full of unexpected surprises. I feel confident in her ability to understand my aesthetic and translate that into art that fits my personality. I would highly recommend her, as she appreciates many different styles and always brings an educated perspective to her projects.”

“As a first time buyer I didn’t know what I was looking for. Kim has helped me identify my taste and I felt like she was also having a good time searching with me. She was very patient throughout the whole process - showing me a lot of different options and encouraging me not to make an impulse purchase. Most importantly she was able to help me find a work that I love without breaking the bank and respecting my budget.”

“Kim has inspired me and influenced the way I look at art. She opened my mind to work that I wouldn’t have considered and that I truly love. But most important is that she has found works for my home that make me feel so lucky that I get to see them every day.”

“Kim has a good eye and good instinct. I have been working with her for many years and artists she brought to my attention who were obscure years ago have become recognized artists.”
– Greg & Kim L.
Pound Ridge, NY
“Kim understood my budget. That was critical for me to begin because I had found the art world to be very intimidating. She started by taking me to some of the art fairs so that we could see a lot of work and she could get a better sense of my taste. The whole experience felt very personal. We met gallerists and artists without any pressure to purchase work. Once I was ready to buy, she had been to my home and knew my taste and also understood what would work in the space. Kim also knows artists that are somewhat off the beaten track. We were able to find work for my kids rooms that were fun and very affordable.”
