1 How did you get your start?

My career as an art dealer began in Hong Kong during a dynamic era for entrepreneurship and art dealers in the city. In the late 1990s, I established one of Asia’s pioneering Western galleries, marking the beginning of a remarkable journey that has now extended over 25 years. Today, I work as an art adviser with offices in London and Hong Kong, allowing me to source artwork worldwide.

2 What projects have you been working on recently?

We recently had the privilege of being part of the Eye of the Collector fair in London, showcasing works by Andy Warhol, Bridget Riley and William Scott. In addition to our ongoing projects in the UK, we are planning a highly anticipated museum show scheduled to take place in Hong Kong next year and being part of a project for curating a sculpture garden in Oman.

3 Do you have an art collection in your home?

Yes, I display an eclectic collection of art and antiques, ranging from Egyptian rugs and Indian maharajah furniture to modern artworks, including Hockney drawings, Bridget Riley prints, a painting by my husband Pip Todd Warmoth depicting his travels in India, (a huge inspiration in all his works as an artist), and a striking sculpture by Lynn Chadwick. As with art advisory projects where we curate deeply personal collections for our clients, the collection in my home carries a profound personal significance, reflecting my unwavering passion for art, antiques and travel.

4 What is your favourite appearance of an antique in a film, play or book?

My personal favourite is Anthony Gormley’s sculpture featured in the show Succession.

5 Real ale or espresso martini?

Could I perhaps have a chilled glass of the house white wine instead?
