Axisweb: Own Art Meets Mr & Mrs Quick
Michael and Hilary Quick prefer to support artists and buy art rather than invest their money in the bank. They really value the relationship they have developed with the gallery they like to buy works from, as the advice they receive helps them to make informed decisions about their purchases.
They often buy works that remind them of times in their lives and places they have lived. Own Art makes it possible for them to live with the artworks that they love.
Axisweb: Own Art Meets David Parkin
David Parkin talks to Own Art about collecting contemporary art. A great rapport with galleries and getting to know artists personally has helped increase his confidence around what to buy, to the point he’s now comfortable collecting pieces of higher value than he would have considered originally. For David, the thought of selling works from his collection, would seem a bit like selling his children.

Axisweb: Own Art Meets Ian Murray
Ian Murray is a filmmaker from South London and talks to Own Art about his passion for collecting contemporary art. For him, great art is about a gut reaction; feeling it in his nervous system and finding something which makes him genuinely excited.
For an artwork to have real value, it’s got to be truly original. His addictive personality helps (out of all the vices he chooses art!) drive his enthusiasm for buying more and more pieces. The better an artist is at conveying an idea through their craft, the more he likes the work.
