dimension to life. I think they also appreciate my consistent discretion in an industry that is more often than not rather indiscreet.
I do have multiple clients that are in the Forbes list of the top 10
wealthiest people in the world. I also have other high net-worth
clients that are in the top 300 wealthiest people in the world. My
studio has attracted a manifold of highly discerning clients with
great means. Their names are known by many of those that are
familiar with my work, so I think it's a bit inelegant for me to ever
offer names or discuss them in conversation. Their wealth is not
what motivates me. Rather, it's that they are genuinely kind, enlightened, excited, appreciative and chose to engage with me personally.
I don't merely work for their corporations, I work with them oneon-one, as well. It's humbling to know that an individual with access
to whatever they want in the world and that has the highest expectations of quality and perfection entrusts me with dreaming and
delivering on their behalf. When speaking of clients with wealth
overall, despite the wealth of my clients, I'm on-record for having
said to various press that I'd rather work with clients that have lesser
wealth but are kind and smart, than I would with people that are
more wealthy but less caring. Tremendous wealth, ill manners and
poor taste are not usually an inviting combination.
