Karen assists Patrick in establishing the business development strategy in the form of intelligent, content-led processes, communicating above all ARTIQ’s passion and unique service and showing how art can make a real different to people’s environments.

Karen has a long track record of successful business development strategies in the sectors she has become a specialist in – hotels and offices, working for many years for leading architecture and design practices active in this field. She brings a great depth and breadth of experience to her role.

‘For our clients, the possibility of becoming patrons of the arts as well as art consumers, by allowing artists to become self-sustaining via our art rental model, is a very powerful thing and creates a positive relationship all-round.’
