Collector Profile: Jessie De Lowe

Co-founder of lifestyle blog How You Glow, Jessie De Lowe knows a thing or two about how to transform a space. A long time Tappan collector, De Lowe curates her charming light filled Santa Monica home with an eye towards emerging artists.

 

Q.

We love your collection. How did you first start acquiring art?

 

A.

I started acquiring art around the same time that I started How You Glow. We featured artists that I love such as Anna Ullman who was nice enough to gift me some of her incredible abstract paintings that I treasure. We also did a story on Tappan and through that feature I was introduced to many emerging artists whose art I now have up on my walls.

Q.

What things did you consider while curating the space?

 

A.

We have quite high ceilings, and our place is light and airy— I wanted to make our home feel warm and inviting by filling the walls with art, while preserving the tranquility and being careful not to clutter.

Jessie De Lowe says

"I think emerging artists are the most interesting. I feel like its a privilege to be able to support someone’s creative endeavor early on."

Q.

Why is collecting emerging art important to you?

A.

I think emerging artists are the most interesting. I feel like its a privilege to be able to support someone’s creative endeavor early on… sort of like when you discover a band and get to see them in a little no-name bar before they potentially become huge and sell out Madison Square Garden one day haha.

      

Q.

Who are your all-time favorite artists?

A.

Picasso, Monet and Frida Kahlo.

      

Q.

What do you want to collect next?

A.

I am interested in collecting more sculptural pieces and ceramics.

      

Q.

What is your favorite work in the collection and why?

 

A.

My Heather Day painting evokes so much emotion — I love all of her work and am so grateful to have a piece!

  

Q.

What inspires you daily?

A.

Anyone putting themselves out there and spreading their glow with the world. My daughter Amelie and my husband Brian are two bright beams of light and inspiration for me. And of course nature, the ultimate muse.
