During these early years, Muriel noticed quite a few talents in photography, such as Yang Yongliang, Christian Tagliavini, whom she introduced then to the photography market in the Netherlands and abroad.
Through the participation in art fairs and exhibitions, the gallery focuses on representing artists in a vivid international network. Together with the artist, strategies are defined to bring the contour of the artist and the gallery to life.
