About Interior Designers and Art Consultants
Interior designers and art consultants are two groups of professionals that provide art for corporations and individuals. Their budgets can range from small to large. They are always seeking art for their clients in a range of mediums such as paintings, works on paper, sculpture, ceramics, glass, textiles/tapestries/wall hangings, photography, mixed-media, new media and more. Some professionals in these groups also specialize in serving the healthcare industry, which is why I include those resources in this article.
