Easing the Pain of Collecting, which appeared on the front page (holy smokes!) of last Thursday's New York Times Home section, answers all your burning Jen Bekman questions. Does she have a trust fund? Did she graduate from college? Can she make a bed? No, no and, um, clearly no. (Pictures don't lie.)*
Seriously, it's actually a thoughtfully written piece that I'm very pleased with and flattered by. Staff reporter Julie Scelfo frames out my history using my apartment to shape the tale. We talk about my art, my various collections of things (pottery, stuff from eBay), how I got started in the art business and how everything in my life is totally and completely perfect now. Woo!
Don't miss the audio clip (all "likes" and "ums" miraculously edited out!) In the clip I give some tips on getting your art on. There's also sidebar that includes many of my recommendations on places to get awesome art affordably, online and off.
Ok, that is all. I will now return to my glamorous New York life of takeout, heavy-footed upstairs neighbors and pet hair.
*I also don't do dishes.
