Talking With a Top Curator at Amazon Art, on the Fine Art of Reinventing Art Buying

What's your role at Amazon Art?

I'm the Senior Manager of Business Development at Amazon Art. I recruit and manage galleries and dealers to sell on the platform as well as organize Amazon's presence at art fairs around the country, spreading the word to the general public. Even though Amazon is a big name, and a brand known throughout the world, Amazon Art is still not on the radar of many people, and just now becoming known. Even internally at Amazon, many people haven't heard of Amazon Art. So, I'm an ambassador for getting the word out, on every level, and to every audience. I'm always thinking of creative ways to reach a more global audience, collectors in the art world, people wanting to collect art, and customers who are already purchasing from Amazon. As you know Amazon is all about the customer, so we work on things like returns and shipping with the Amazon system, as well as making it a stellar art site within Amazon.
