PLEASE FILL OUT ONE APPRAISAL FORM PER ARTWORK
For a more accurate appraisal, please provide as much information as possible about your art, regardless if you think it’s important. Please note that the appraisal will be done via email with good pictures, and on the assumptions that all of the information you provided below is accurate; otherwise it will be invalid. I adhere to the Principles of Appraisal Practice and a Code of Ethics and conduct, and USAP compliant. I do not buy art; I conduct professionally written appraisals to use when you sell to others or for insurance, donation, etc. For a list of paintings, please fill out the first and third page only once, and then page 2 for each painting. It usually takes 1-2 business days per painting appraised remotely for completion once all info is sent. For on-site appraisals, please contact me. My report is a very thorough and informative-and at least 12 pages long. Thank you for your trust!
