Studying economics and marketing at college in Stockholm, Catherine Ahnell often found herself next to a pile of art books when at the library. Little did she know how it would all come together. As the winner of Eileen FORD’s Super Model Of The Year, Swedish born Catherine left for Paris after her studies to pursue an international career as a fashion model. Her success brought her to New York where she soon discovered her new talent as a Real Estate developer.
As an avid collector of contemporary art, Catherine realized the possibility of fusing her expertise and passion. She bought a space in the heart of Soho, New York, which became the CATHERINE AHNELL GALLERY.
– This project is a gift to myself, an experiance I would like to share with others, says Catherine.
