"I would like to commend Eve Black for the outstanding job she has done in producing a comprehensive catalogue of my family's art collection. She brought to the task a finely developed sense of aesthetics and outstanding skills in layout and design. In addition, Eve had a sensitivity for the story behind the acquisitions that highlighted the personal meaning and significance of the collection. I particularly appreciated her flexibility and acceptance of new ideas and suggestions, while still being very attentive to detail. Throughout the process of creating this catalogue I have found Eve to be highly efficient, a pleasure to work with and a complete professional."

"Eve's aesthetic eye and professional attention to detail produced a beautiful catalogue that captured the vision of what I had hoped to achieve with the project. Eve has a particular talent in interviewing people. I was impressed at how well Eve was able to pivot with new information and incorporate moving in new directions that unfolded in the creative process of working together artistically and resourcefully."

"Working with Eve Black on the catalogue of our art collection was a wonderful experience. Eve is expert at providing all that is necessary in order to achieve a gorgeous result. She is professional, thorough, patient , pleasant and positive. She has excellent attention to detail. She's responsive, proactive, independent and she allowed us to be as involved (or not) as we wanted. Eve is imaginative, extremely intelligent and creative and has an excellent esthetical sense. We also were greatly impressed with the team of people that assisted her. Thank you Eve for a fantastic experience and catalogue."

"When I began working with Eve, I really 'just' needed an inventory and record of the art and antiquities my husband and I had amassed over our marriage but mainly over our time in Caesarea when we had the space to display. At first the thought was simply overwhelming, and we truly had no idea of what and how much there was... It took a year and amazingly we did it all before the movers arrived to pack it all up and put it into storage until our next home is ready... While I see these catalogues still as a work in progress... there are pieces loaned out that weren't photographed and new additions I am sure... with Eve it will be a breeze… and an absolutely stunning creation… I was totally impressed at first sight. The catalogues truly blew me away and I am more than delighted."

Eve BlackClients approach me because they are either serious collectors who want a recorded, elegant and personal account of their lifetime of collecting – chronicling the way it all began, the story behind the story, why they chose what they chose and what it means to them – or – they've collected items a bit more casually, gradually surrounding themselves with pieces, and ultimately wanting to share the story of how the items found their way into their lives.

The collections present a visual narrative and without realizing it, what emerges through the process is a wonderfully unexpected and personal life story that serves as a living legacy for the collector's loved ones, friends and colleagues.

By putting everything into a single volume you invite those whom you care about to take a walk through your life – as you chose it to be – and become much more connected to who you are and what is meaningful to you.

I'm Eve Black. With a B.Sc. in Arts Administration and an MA in Heritage Management, I am a Cultural Resource Management Consultant, Editor and Curator with many years of collection management experience and catalogue creation.

Let's Get Started


Whatever it is you collect – either as a novice collector, newly entering the exciting world of collecting or a more experienced collector, for whom your collection represents long-term, carefully planned purchases of specific objects – I work with you throughout the process – wherever you may be – to present your collection to its fullest.

It would be my personal pleasure to discuss your specific project with you.

I look forward to hearing from you.
