No, we aren't talking about those spoiled twits on the intolerable Bravo series Gallery Girls. In fact, we'd much rather have seen these talented, ambitious fems who curate Miami's art scene on the reality show. At least that way we would have learned something about art.

Favorite local artist: No favorites, just a few whose work seems to always be on my mind: Nicolas Lobo, Bhakti Baxter, Christy Gast, Emmett Moore, and Daniel Milewski.

What are your hopes for art in Miami? That we continue to participate in an international dialog while retaining our hometown camaraderie, accessibility, and generosity.

Best place to see art in Miami? Anything the fellow ladies in this story curated or organized.

Finish this sentence: Art Basel is: Absolute madness.

What's missing from Miami's artscape? More grant money for individual artists.

If you could own any one piece what would it be? I just bought a work that I can't wait to get home, Emmett Moore's Platonic Coffee Table.

Favorite medium? Burlap, terrazzo and wallpaper have all made unexpected appearances in recent works by my artists.
