In His Own Words ...

 
What's the most exciting part about visiting, performing valuations, and connecting with clients?

I love the opportunity to work with collectors and families who have served as stewards and caretakers of these works, preserving them for generations. It's especially rewarding to hear the stories of how these collections formed and what they have meant to their former owners.

 

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

I especially enjoy when we learn something new or make an unexpected discovery! In this business you truly never know what you might encounter.

 

Name three artists/designers/makers you're excited Freeman's has sold or is offering.

George Nakashima, Paul Evans, and Wharton Esherick.
