I provide fine art appraisals for insurance scheduling, damage and loss, and the purchase or sale of fine art property. Detailed, impartial, and confidential appraisal reports are prepared in compliance with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP) and the American Society of Appraisers’ (ASA) Code of Ethics. I have earned a certificate in appraisal studies, having completed more than 150 hours of coursework, including the 15 hour USPAP course and the series of classes required for accreditation by the ASA.
