“To be an artist is not a matter of making paintings or objects at all. What we are really dealing with is our state of consciousness and the shape of our perceptions.” —Robert Irwin

April Lee Advisory’s primary goal is to support and enrich an individual’s experience with art. Cultivating an appreciation for art is the foundation of our approach. 

From supporting single artwork purchases to more comprehensive collection development needs, our process begins with understanding our clients’ unique preferences.
