“I have enjoyed a passion for collecting the works of geniuses using my unique gifts and abilities. I have the remarkable ability to go back in time and connect with the artist, the craftsman, or painter. Feeling their creativity inside me, I began collecting a variety of beautiful and rare items. This has been a life long passion of mine. Each piece of my vast collection involved a unique journey of acquisition. Each piece has its own story and exquisite history — I cherish them all. After years of requests from private collectors and famed auction houses to sell or release parts of my collection, I have agreed to share them with those who can have keen insight into the genius and beauty of each piece.” – JZ Knight
