About Me

Since 1977, I have provided professional appraisals of fine art, collections, and outdoor monuments.

My specialization is authentication and valuation of late 19th through 21st century European, American, and Latin American paintings, drawings, prints, and sculpture.

As an Accredited Senior Member of the American Society of Appraisers, I'm an expert for consultation and research on damage and loss (including fire, water, and mold damage), insurance scheduling and claims, estate settlements and charitable donations, asset management and equitable distribution, research of provenance and forgeries.

In addition to expert witness depositions and litigation support, I offer comprehensive management of collections, including pre-purchase research and negotiation, as well as fine art handling, packing, crating, customs clearance, installation, electronic security systems, and lighting. I was President of the American Society of Appraisers (Los Angeles, 2003-04).
