My greatest achievement is…
Placing our artists’ works in important museum collections and developing a name for the gallery at an international level.


The most underrated art movement is…
Women artists.


The museum I’d like to lead…
One of the FRACs (Regional Fund for Contemporary Art) in southern France.


The artist I should have signed…
Barbara Kasten.


Things that keep me awake at 3am…
Post-vernissage adrenaline coupled with too much wine.


I last cooked for…
My kids and husband.


Dealers are misunderstood because…
They’re often pictured as greedy and dishonest.


Fairs are important…
To put yourself out there.


Small talk is…
A necessity.


I am happiest when…
I discover my artists’ newest works and it blows my mind.


The next big thing…
Not an art fair.


I wish I had met…
Eva Hesse.


Travel broadens…
Connections.


Life’s too short to…
Overthink..


My Art Basel in Miami Beach dream is to…
Do really well on the first couple of days then take half a day off to go to the Spa at the Standard [hotel].


My main priority post-pandemic is…
To keep hustling.
