Appraiser's Statement

An independent fine art appraiser specializing in Post-War, Contemporary and Emerging Art, my office is located in Palm Springs, California. I offer onsite appraisal services throughout Southern California, as well as remote appraisals wherever they may be required. I am an Accredited Member of the Appraisers Association of America, and USPAP compliant thought March 22, 2024.

I have worked in the fine art industry since arriving in the U.S. from Australia 20 years ago. I have experience in a variety of professional roles both in the private art market and in the museum world. This has given me a comprehensive, hands-on familiarity and understanding of various genres including Contemporary Art, Post-War Art, Contemporary Glass, Prints, and Emerging Art, and their markets. I graduated from New York University’s Appraisal Studies in Fine and Decorative Arts program in 2016, and in 2017 began working as an independent fine art appraiser.

I prepare appraisal reports for:

  • Insurance
  • Non-Cash Charitable Contribution (Donation)
  • Estate Planning
  • Estate Tax
  • Equitable Distribution of Estates

Previous clients include private collectors, museums,  galleries, attorneys, artist’s estates, and financial services companies, as well as many individuals who are interested to know more about the artwork they have inherited, been given, or acquired throughout their lives.

Additional services include project management, database management, cataloging, and archiving. I have a rich source of art-world contacts from art-handlers to curators to dealers to appraisers with different specialties who I am always happy to refer.
