"I HAVE A KNACK FOR PICKING GREAT TALENT. HAVING COLLECTED ART FOR YEARS, ALL MY PIECES ARE BY ARTISTS WHO ARE NOW IN PERMANENT COLLECTIONS IN MUSEUMS AROUND THE WORLD. THEY WERE UNKNOWN, OR EMERGING AT THE TIME, BUT I KNEW THEY HAD GREAT POTENTIAL. THAT BEING SAID, I AM MORE THAN CONFIDENT ABOUT MY ARTIST’S TALENT AND THEIR VERY BRIGHT FUTURES." - MEGAN J. PHILLIPS
