You know it's art when the check clears

In a 341 square foot apartment packed to the walls with fine antique picture frames in New York's West Village, Heather Karlie Fine Art was founded in 2002. Reaching out to Manhattan's elite Upper East Side art galleries, I asked for appointments to show them my inventory of picture frames. The reception was warm and I soon found myself schlepping armfuls of frames on the 1 train to Union Square, then changing to the 6 train uptown. Yes. I started my business with a MetroCard. Only a few times was I actually asked to leave the train, most times it was smooth sailing and an interesting ride to boot. It's not everyday when you see someone with ten antique frames on their shoulders. Not even for so-called 'jaded' New Yorkers. I had a business. And an awesome opportunity. Pablo Picasso is quoted as saying, "inspiration exists, but it has to find you working". New York City is the city of inspiration!

And those ten years in New York City, saw me start my business as well as another business… 20th Century by HKFA. Heather Karlie Fine Art is a business for and about art. While 20th Century by HKFA is for and about all those crazy things I like to buy… 20th Century by HKFA

Visit my website, visit the shop in Philly or stop by my booth in the Antique and Design Center of High Point during the extravaganza that is Furniture Market every April and October.
