I am a fully insured personal property appraiser and researcher based in New York specializing in fine art. In September 2017, I was awarded the national emerging appraiser scholarship from The Decorative Arts Trust and the Foundation for Appraisal Education.
I have a Bachelor's degree from Adelphi University, Garden City in Art History and International Studies as well as a Master's degree from Christie's Education, New York in the History of Art & the Art Market: Modern & Contemporary Art. I have received my Certificate in the Appraisal of Fine & Decorative Art from New York University and I am an Associate Member of the Appraisers Association of America.
I am in the top 5% of personal property appraisers who have taken and passed USPAP. USPAP (Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice) is the United States government standard for appraisal practice.
My initial approach to an appraisal is from a non-biased, scholarly perspective. The resulting report will be accurate, thoroughly researched, and affordable.
I look forward to working with you!

discovering top rated art service companies worldwide.
Appraisals are needed for:
Insurance purposes (insurance schedules, damage and loss)
Distribution (marriage and business dissolution, estate planning)
Resale and inventory
IRS Tax purposes
Each appraisal includes one bound copy for the clients’ use and one additional copy to be distributed to the insurance company or wherever the client designates.
Research can be conducted in these areas:
Provenance (history and documentation of works)
Condition of works
Provide recommendations for art services (selling, shipping, conservation)
Please note: Appraisers are not authenticators. Provenance research may be used to support legitimacy; however, both appraisals and research reports are professional opinions and should be treated as such.
A fee schedule is available upon request. Please fill out the contact form for a consultation.
