“Dini and I  have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ingrid Wypkema for many years to find art for our homes in Vancouver, The Netherlands and California.  Not only is Ingrid professional to work with, she is also knowledgeable and artistic in her field.  Her inspiration blended beautiful artwork with the interiors in our homes.”

“Eva and I have purchased many fine pieces of art from Ingrid, both original paintings as well as sculptures.  Ingrid has a great knowledge of the local B.C. art community and has excellent taste in art selection.  Her recommendations are genuine and not motivated by simply making a sale.  Ingrid also looks after our framing needs, as well as arranging crating and shipping pieces to the U.S.  She can always be counted on to follow up on any and all details of what needs to be done.  It will be a pleasure to work with Ingrid in the future to add more fine art to our collection.”
 
Doug Christopher, President, Montrose Development Ltd., & Eva Christopher, Partner, Whitelaw Twining Law Firm, Vancouver, BC

“My husband and I ordered two custom art pieces from an art gallery that Ingrid Wypkema managed at the time.  Her experience, knowledge and attention to detail was outstanding.  She listened to our requirements and expertly communicated them to the artist creating a perfect end result.  I also attended a couple of photographic workshops that Ingrid organized.  She managed to coordinate the events successfully for both the participants and the professional instructors.  It has been my experience that Ingrid works hard to provide the best service possible for her clients.”

“I was glad to hear that Ingrid has gone out on her own as an independent art agent. For more than a decade now she has developed a fine eye and a penchant for individual attention. Ingrid has a totally professional way of handling the details—framing, shipping, even hanging and placing work. Further, with her wide connections among creative people, she is practically always able to find the most appropriate art to suit a buyer’s needs.”

“My husband and I met Ingrid Wypkema a number of years ago when she was managing a downtown Vancouver art gallery. We found her to be very professional and knowledgeable as she patiently helped us to pick out a painting for our living room. We were very pleased with the service we received from her and returned again within the year to purchase another painting with her guidance.  We greatly enjoyed our conversations with Ingrid as she was always very friendly and would remember us, even if we had not been to the gallery for a year. We wish her every success as an art agent, and we look forward to our ongoing connection with her.”
