ArtCollect a new platform supporting Canadian art and artists.

ArtCollect originally began as the Artist Spotlight Series in 2020 when I interviewed artists from across Canada.

Reflecting on the experience of listening to artists speaking in their own voices provided an incomparable personal perspective and a valuable one to share.

As the series gained popularity with artists and collectors, I decided to expand its scope and create ArtCollect as a platform dedicated to showcasing and promoting Canadian artists. Through features, interviews and collaborations, ArtCollect aims to celebrate the diversity and talent of artists in various mediums and styles.

I present online exhibitions and occasional pop-up exhibitions to add colour to the conversations giving you access to the artist’s most recent work and the opportunity to purchase artworks.

I hope to fully engage people with contemporary art and provide insight into artists they might like to support and collect.
