Curious about the value of your collection?




In their own words...


What part of your job makes you get out of bed and come to work in the morning?

Getting to work hands-on with such incredible artwork. From the research to the physical condition reporting, I love getting to know the stories behind each work consigned to auction.


If you could own any object Freeman's has sold, which would it be?

I would love to own a Lalanne sheep. There is something so whimsical and charming about them⁠—and they each seem to have their own personalities! Not to mention the fact that they are also iconic and hold such significance in art history.
