    I am writing you because I am developing a website called Eco1st Art.com and it will look like 1st Dibs.com. My inspiration is Jane Goodall, Ed Begley and Pierce Brosnan “who have endorsed us”to only present recycled, eco-friendly, sustainable, green art and objects at a very high end level. My clients would be the persons that shop at Asprey’s or Museums.

    Very candidly, I would like to present your work …..Please look at 1st dibs.com and let me know what you think.

    Thank you,

    Janeen
