Emma Richan is a Toronto based art consultant currently pursuing her PhD in Art History at the University of Victoria with a specialization in modern and contemporary art. Her research is focussed on the lesser-known early work of Clyfford Still, a leading Abstract Expressionist. Emma earned her Master of Arts in Visual Studies at the University of Western Ontario and her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Art History from Queen’s University. She has worked in art galleries, auction houses, and museums across Canada.

Her extensive academic and industry experience bridges the gap between these two related, yet often separated worlds, presenting a unique perspective on the process of building and maintaining an art collection. Through her consulting practice, she provides services relating to acquisitions, appraisals, public art, collection management, public speaking, and writing projects.

Emma is passionate about connecting her clients with artwork they fall in love with to build stunning collections that tell their unique story.

In addition, Emma is an active member of the International Society of Appraisers, the Art Gallery of Ontario, College Art Association (US), and National Ballet of Canada’s Turnout programme.
