Merle Elias is a writer, researcher and a certified culture vulture. Back in NYC in the 80s, she began her career as an apprentice to one of the art industry’s very first art advisors. Dispatched to galleries, museums, and auction houses, she was properly schooled to write condition reports, place bids at auctions, and helped build the collections of their high-profile clients.
Armed with an extraordinary amount of hands-on experience, in 1990 she accepted an opportunity to relocate to the west coast to expand her universe. It was in Los Angeles that she naturally fell into becoming a visual artist rep where she identified exhibition and sales opportunities for her stable of clients. Writing and researching guidebooks is a passion of hers. One she cannot explain rationally to this day.
