Customized Approach

We understand that every project is unique. That's why we take the time to get to know our clients and learn about their company's culture, values, history and plans for the future. We approach each project as a team effort with our clients, and work closely with them to become familiar with their short and long-term art collection goals. This enables us to formulate and implement a program strategy for each client that is individualized and cost-effective.

Once a plan has been developed and budgets approved, we will personally oversee each project from
concept to completion.

Our Artists Resources

We understand that each client's aesthetic and budgetary needs are different. That's why we offer
a culturally rich and diverse group of well-established, mid-career and emerging artists from around
the globe, with an emphasis on artists from the Pacific Northwest.

No matter what our client's art requirements are, we are familiar with and will offer a wide range of style, subject media and price options to choose from. Our clients have the opportunity to view the works that we will recommend for their environments whether it is office interiors, lobbies, atriums, outdoor plazas or other public spaces.
