“Our organization recently expanded one of our communities and performed major renovations on existing common spaces. The community is located in beautiful Sonoma County, and we wanted to keep the spirit of Sonoma County in the process. Nancy was suggested as a local resource and after meeting with her; it was an easy decision to move forward with her as our consultant. First of all, it is an absolute pleasure to work with Nancy. She is positive, resourceful, and understands that some art is a better fit than others for a given space and clientele, and is flexible in finding the right fit. Nancy has excellent connections with artists and was diligent in sourcing the perfect pieces for every space and worked to find solutions within our budget. I highly recommend working with Nancy if you are seeking an experienced, thoughtful, and talented art consultant.”
