For 20 years, owners Lisa Diamond Katz and Shira Wood have believed that everyone should be able to own an original piece of art and as a result they have created a well curated, approachable gallery with works representing a variety of styles and genres by Canadian artists.
Lisa Diamond Katz graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Western Ontario. While working at a well-known poster publishing and distribution company, Lisa realized customers were spending more on frames than the reproductions inside them. She envisioned a place where people could buy original pieces of art at affordable prices.
Shira Wood studied Fine Art at the University of Western Ontario. After graduating in 1992, Shira worked for a custom furniture company before moving on to the Toronto Design Exchange, where she created original, hand-painted designs for custom furnishings. An artist herself, Shira understood the struggle typical of young artists: finding a place to show and sell their work.
Since opening Art Interiors in 1993, Lisa and Shira have a built solid reputation among art collectors and decorators as an excellent source for work by young as well as established artists.
