Hi, I'm Katharine.  I have a knack for making spaces better.  I love puttering around with accessories, primping up a bar cart, and giving a room some character.  To me, art is the best way to add character to a space.  

I have a few degrees and a trained eye to help you find that right piece; the one that makes the space complete, that celebrates personal taste, and that has a lasting emotional impact.  I work to marry space, taste, and budget to find something that you're excited to see every day.  

My background differs from that of a traditional art advisor/consultant (it's the same thing); I'm well versed in art history and market dynamics. I have a BA in Art History and Economics from Williams College and an MA in Art Business from Sotheby's Institute.  I have worked in MoMA's management office, learning what drives a world-class museum, and later an entrepreneurial hub of Christie's to lead business development in New York, London, and Singapore. Traveling to art fairs around the world, networking with the art world’s biggest taste makers, and seeing incredible art created a solid platform for subsequently leading business development at Gurr Johns, a global advisory and appraisal firm that handles art of any kind, high-end design, jewelry and wine. 

Through these adventures, I learned a ton about art, the art market, business, trust, gossip, and taste.  I wanted to share a piece of this with those interested in buying art, help them develop their own good taste, and get some art on their wall.  One leap later, Mason Lane was born. 

Katharine is an ultimate professional and can conceptualize and execute an art strategy customized for your taste and budget. She is knowledgeable about art and trends, industrious, flexible and very responsive.
