About

After four years as the Decorative Arts cataloguer in a Seattle auction house, I pursued an art history degree at the University of Washington to bolster the knowledge I had gained from my work experience. I branched out as a part-time dealer while working for a local estate jeweler and continued to buy and sell for the last 15 years, attending estate sales and auctions every weekend. My education concentrated on 19th c. European, British, and American art, and how 19th c. art impacted development of modern art and collecting in the 20th c. Additionally, I completed coursework in Spanish art, Mexican art, and American Indian studies and indigenous art history. My qualifications and CV with references are available upon request.

My subject area focus is on 19th and 20th c. decorative arts and furniture (mid-20th century furniture and applied arts are favorites) Native American art of the NW coast and the Southwest, vintage clothing and ethnic textiles. I have experience with American and Hawaiian ukuleles as a player and collector and a parallel passion for Hawaiian and artisan-made turned wood bowls. I currently work full-time as an appraiser with Seattle appraisal firm Foss Appraisal.
