LEADERSHIP

Elizabeth Dupree Lynch
Founder/President

Elizabeth Dupree Lynch, founder of EDL Art Consultants, will remain on as President overseeing Client Relations and Marketing.  She will continue to utilize her 28 plus years of experience to insure clients continue to receive the best art consulting services that they come to expect from EDL.

Elizabeth maintains the passion, inspiration and vision for this successful, WBENC minority-owned company.  Without a solid business model to replicate at EDL’s inception, Elizabeth became a pioneer in her field.  She perceived and understood the need at that time for her skills and talents of bringing together business, people, and artists in a way that was mutually beneficial for all concerned.  EDL Art Consultants has sustained an impeccable reputation over its nearly 30-year span due to her unmatched passion for artwork, commitment to fairness, professionalism, and enthusiasm.

Elizabeth’s business philosophy is founded on fairness to all and ensuring that each project preserves the highest achievable relevance and significance possible.  One her most remarkable skills is the ability to bring business and art together in a way that benefits everyone concerned.  Elizabeth sees herself and the company as a catalyst for change in the art industry as she seeks rewarding relationships for each person involved in every consultation.

Elizabeth’s credentials include schooling in Art History & Language at the EuroCentre School in Lausanne, Switzerland, and Art History at the Instituto Allende in San Miguel, Mexico.  Elizabeth has a passion for all things of beauty and design, and she creates this experience in every aspect of her career and lifestyle. She has traveled the world experiencing many cultures, people, and the great art and design of the world's capitals.  In addition, Elizabeth is a philanthropist and is exceedingly committed to educating the underprivileged children of the world.

"Artists are most important to EDL and myself.  In this world today it is important to support the arts and cultural activities, for without them, life would not have the same meaning.  I have a profound appreciation for the beauty and meaning that the art collections EDL Art Consultants have created for the many people around the world that have had the opportunity to view the collections we have assembled.  To whom much is given much is expected; that is what excites me and justifies my life-long dedication to the art and culture of the world."

Jennifer Wellman
Managing Partner

Jennifer has over 13 years experience in art consulting. She has worked on both domestic and international projects and has learned throughout the years that each project has a unique story to tell.  Jennifer believes that while the design leads you through the journey of the story, it is the art that creates the dialogue with the viewer. After all, art is the ultimate conversationalist.

Jennifer holds a Bachelor in Fine Art in Sculpture with a minor in Art History along with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Georgia State University.

"The challenge of art consulting is not putting a beautiful piece of artwork into a well designed space; it is understanding the designer’s vision and helping them create it."
