Hi, I'm Catherine, and I'm an art collector.

I live with my husband and our infant son in Alexandria, Virginia. Our art collection--like our home and our lives in general--is a work in progress. We're not art experts and we're not particularly wealthy, but we love art, so we've made it a priority.

To help pay the bills (and buy more art), I work as an analyst for the DoD, a job I find rewarding if not especially creative. UNPATRONIZING is a little passion project that provides me that creative outlet, while also giving me opportunities to learn more about collecting and connect with other art lovers.
