The connection between artists and collectors of art, is intertwined and interdependent, and has been a continuing partnership throughout history. By purchasing and displaying art, the patron now owns a one of a kind work of art that has touched, moved or inspired him that will increase in intrinsic and monetary value over time. Through dialogue between the artist and patron, the art and the philosophy behind the art becomes known and creates curiosity and interest in knowing and meeting the artist. A heightened interest is created around the artists work adding to the demand for the art. History has shown there is a direct correlation between the reputation of the artist and the financial value of his existing and future art work. This scenario increases the value of the art in the patron's collection and is a proven and sound financial strategy.

Investing in the art of a living artist allows the patron the opportunity to know who the artist is and what the artist stands for. What has and does bring the two together is centered in energy. It is the energy transfer from the artist, to the created art, and received by the viewer physically and/or psychologically that creates the bond. The energy is not from nothing, but rather has been waiting within each to be awakened. This energy connects us to each other, to all, and creates the dynamic partnership between the artist and patron. We all are both creators and patrons.
