How to buy art with confidence..

Here are some things you should consider when buying art to ensure you are getting a good quality piece that you will love for years to come:



  • Do your research: Before you start shopping, take some time to learn about the different types of art that are available and what you are interested in. This will help you narrow down your search and focus on artists and genres that you appreciate.


  • Set a budget: Art can range in price from very affordable to extremely expensive. It is important to set a budget for yourself before you start shopping so that you don't overspend.




  • Visit galleries and museums: This is a great way to see art in person and get a sense of the scale and quality of different pieces. You can also talk to gallery staff and learn more about the artists and their work. I always welcome collectors into my home to view the art.


  • Talk to artists: If you are interested in buying a piece of art from a local artist, reach out to them and ask if they would be willing to meet with you to discuss their work. This is a great way to learn more about the artist and their process, and to get a sense of their personality.



  • Don't be afraid to negotiate: If you are interested in buying a piece of art from a gallery, don't be afraid to negotiate the price. The gallery may be willing to work with you to reach a price that you are both comfortable with.

  • Enjoy your art! Once you have purchased a piece of art, take some time to enjoy it. Hang it in your home or office and admire it every day.




Here are some additional tips for buying art with confidence:

  • Buy what you love: Don't buy a piece of art just because you think it is a good investment. Buy art that you love and that speaks to you.

  • Trust your instincts: If you have a gut feeling about a piece of art, go with your instincts. Don't let anyone else tell you what you should or should not like.

  • Don't be afraid to ask questions: If you are unsure about something, don't be afraid to ask questions. The gallery staff or artist should be happy to answer your questions and help you make an informed decision.

  • Take your time: Don't feel rushed to make a decision. Take your time to consider all of your options and choose a piece of art that you will love for years to come.

I hope these tips help you buy art with confidence. Please get in touch with any questions anytime, Emily.
