“I collect art that intrigues me intellectually. I like to discover why the artist makes art. The artist needs to show me something about the world I would have otherwise never seen on my own” – Todd Walker.
For years, Todd has passionately and regularly attended gallery openings at local Tampa galleries as well as in L.A. and is well known around Denver and Tampa for his savvy collecting instincts and his long term emotional and financial commitment to the artists he acquires.
While the walls in both of his homes, in Denver and Tampa, are filled to capacity, he is still an avid art hunter, discoverer, and collector, and always on the prowl.
Mr. Walker is well known for finding artists early in their careers before others catch on. He admires all the artists in his collection, but pushes his favorites such as Simphiwe Ndzube, Suchitra Mattia, Andrew Jennsdotter, Razvan Boar, Wendy White, and Brandon Landers.
Motivated, inspired, loyal and driven, after Todd acquires a work, he likes to help the artist further their careers by finding them museum shows and other galleries for representation and even financial support and artist studio lodging. He loves validating an artist’s work by showing art to galleries and museum curators. He takes great pride in discovering gifted emerging artists and championing their careers.
He loves artworks that are challenging, thought-provoking, and speaks to you every day, and makes you feel different when you view them. He kiddingly says that she knows he is “getting it right” when his sports lover friends come to his house and make fun of the art on his walls.
Mr. Walker lives in Denver and Tampa. He is the co-founder of Arapaho Asset Management, a retirement education and investing firm.

Danielle Dannucci With Ink & Lace
I am the creator and producer of Ink&Lace The Fashion Event. I am also a veteran alternative model, runway model, and fashion model. I have been in this industry for about 12 years. Ink&lace was created 3 years ago and produced 2 years ago. I originally created my business/show Ink&Lace to give heavily tattooed models like myself a platform to walk in a fashion show where they aren't judged based on their tattoos alone.
We also do not discriminate against age, height, weight, race, sex, etc.. We accept models from all spectrums. The only thing we do ask Is for you to be heavily tattooed. In Your typical fashion shows you do not see tattooed models walk for runway. This is because most fashion shows are looking for waking hangers or Maniquins.They feel tattoos will take away from the designs clothing that they may be Showcasing.
When in reality tattoos can enhance someone's designs. I was denied the opportunity to walk In a show that I had walked in many times before because I was told specifically my tattoos would take away from the outfit. So that's why here at Ink&Lace we celebrate women from all walks of life with tattoos and we want to show them off. We also hope doing so will open up opportunities for our models that they typically wouldn't be given. Alternative models are more then just tattoos we are fashion models too.
