According to Sophie, “Art brings a space to life, and seeing someone’s collection in their homes gives you a little sense of them. It reflects their personality.” The beauty of art is its ability to transcend time and generations; “It’s a way of expressing something within someone, yet it can last for years and years to come,” which makes it so important in a home. The art you select “captures a moment in time and preserves the memory of what is happening in your life.” It’s significant and impactful.
For anyone looking to purchase their own artwork, the founders recommend following your intuition. “Go with your gut”, says Sophie, “if you have a connection with a piece and love it straight away, follow that.” Isabella agrees: “See what you have a connection with rather than selecting a piece of art you think you should like.” Consider what you’re buying and avoid purchasing artwork because “Apparently, they will be really big”. Sophie confirms this approach: “If you can afford it and you’ve fallen in love with it, go with that.” Equally important is to support emerging artists, which is where Wondering People comes into its own. The platform is the perfect, beautiful starting point for anyone looking to enter the art world.
For those who struggle to decide, Wondering People has recently launched a bespoke art consultancy service where they “curate personalised collections” for individuals or businesses. The team will personally visit your space and collaborate with you, offering “tailored advice on suitable artworks and artists”.
