Her focus is on the professional development of 150 emerging artists who live and work in New York City and Paris, France, to provide them with opportunities that will further enhance their careers beyond the scope of a historic archive. I work collaboratively in both markets with an emphasis on French start-ups, gallerists and philanthropists based in Paris.
