One of the founding principles for Fiercely Curious is to connect you directly to the artists and designers we work with. It's why we create rich profiles on them, take photos of their studio and it's why we believe studio visits are the best way to buy art.
Not everyone in the art world believes in making the artist available but there is no part of my job more satisfying than spending time in an artist's studio. I get a creative high each and every time from seeing and hearing all about the work and what goes into it. It's like having a coffee date or drink with someone who has opted out of their day job, took a moment to ask themselves what really made their heart beat and then went out and did it! How can one not be envious?
I get all fired up about this, because quite honestly, if we only have one life to live, why not spend our time making, doing, creating something that makes our hearts swoon?
So, I'm offering to take you there! We've been taking clients on free studio visits and it's really what I'd like to share most with you. You'll be able to explore the process, hear from the artist / designer why they created what they did, see what they're currently up to and if you feel so inclined, you can purchase a piece by them, discuss a custom piece for your own space or just enjoy seeing their mental wheels turn as they share their process with you.
We love visiting galleries (and we love the pop up gallery shows that we host), but one thing that we often times feel is lacking from this experience, is the ability to meet the artist, hear first hand about why they chose to create the work that they do. For me, connecting the dots makes my personal appreciation for their work that much greater. The stark whiteness of a gallery wall is indeed the perfect environment to showcase a finished piece, but the real magic comes from the combination of the art and the artist.

So here's how we do it -
1. You send us an email with the artist that you'd like to visit and when you're free.
2. We book the visit and meet you there!
3. You get an intimate one-on-one experience and get to see a full range of work as well as a sneak peek into what the artist is currently creating.

It's an hour well spent and I'm always so rewarded when I see the client's reaction to what they just experienced - total excitement about the personal and up close taste of the creative process. So drop me a line if you'd like to visit any of our artists and designers spaces. I'd love to take you there: firstname.lastname@example.org
