I got this email a few days ago. I called them to find out more. Yesterday I got a phone call from a women named Alice somewhere in Illinois (HQ are in SF). It sounded all too good…! So I did some more digging and found this article: https://theartistsjd.com/vida-tos/ Not only is the article informative but it is worth reading the the comments left by artists.
Any feedback/experience with this person?

A reader sent this in, “Lisa Saltman @saltmanastassoicatesinc (on facebook) a supposed art advisor, sold my pictures to the hotel without my permission. She claims that she took a monograph (Surfland) of my work, ripped it apart, matted and framed it and sold it to this client, cheaply she added. This client just happens to be a Hyatt hotel. Whether this act may or may not be a copyright infringement, it is a gross insult and outrage to me and every artist who struggles to make a living from their practice. It is a misrepresentation of my art and how it lives in the world. This person actually contacted me years before this act with interest in my work. I suppose she found it more lucrative to do things her own way. Do not work with her!”
Anyone else have a comment on this?
