1. KNOW YOUR BUDGET

You don't need an infinite budget to start an art collection. However, you do need to have a solid idea of how much you're willing to invest. "By knowing how much you have to spend on art, you'll have a realistic picture of what you can expect to purchase," says Philippa Demase, founder and curator, Art to Art Gallery. "Many emerging art collectors start with a small budget and as they expand their knowledge of the marketplace and learn to trust their instincts, they increase their budget with greater confidence."

2. START COLLECTING YOUR ART NOW

"There's no better time to start collecting original art than now," says Philippa. "It takes just one piece then you are on your way. Always keep it original and authentic.
