Pippy Houldsworth, Director
After working at Waddington Galleries and the New Art Centre, Pippy represented artists from her flat and then a warehouse space for ten years before opening in the West End in 1999. She was one of the first dealers to sell a number of works of a young artist to Charles Saatchi at the end of the 80s. She studied art history at Oxford Brookes University and the Sorbonne, Paris. She served three years on the Executive Committee of the Society of London Art Dealers, as well as two sub-committees for the society, and served on the Sub-Acquisitions Committee at the Tate from 1995 to 1997.

Hannah earned a first class BA in 2008 from the University of Durham, and spent a sabbatical year at Christie’s Education in Paris. She gained an MA in Art History from University College London in 2009. Hannah is responsible for liaising with artists and collectors, dealing with the press and publicity as well as being the main point of contact with museums, public institutions and curators. Hannah also plays an important role in developing curatorial strategies for the exposure and promotion of artists.
