Our Team

TalkAbout grew from our mutual love of art.


The TalkAbout team comes from a diverse range of fields, including Art History, Psychology, English, Philosophy, History, and Cultural Heritage Law. We all share a love of viewing and talking about art, and a desire to bring that experience to others.
