If you were to give advice to your younger self, what would it be?

You'll make mistakes, don't be so hard on yourself but learn from them.

Tell us about a woman, well-known or not, whom you admire and why.

My mother for her drive and generosity, wisdom and positivity!

Do you collect art?

Yes, but often I find it being a conflict of interest in that when I look at a work that I consider buying, I often think why are we not working with the artist as a gallery. And most of the artists we work with as a gallery, I feel collecting their work might make me even more biased when advising clients! I think it is important to have a certain degree of separation between the collector's role and a gallerist's - although now it seems the distinction is blurred.
