Appraisal FAQ's

I'm an artist. Can you help me value or sell my paintings?

No. Unfortunately, I do NOT help artists value their artwork or sell their paintings. Please do not contact me for assistance with this.

Why is the appraisal process free?

I do this as a second job. I love art and get to see all types this way. I make my money selling it to my clients, and I sell a lot, over a million a year.

Do you ever charge for the appraisal process?

I ONLY charge for a written appraisal of your artwork. You would only need this if you are going to insure your art or to help in settling an estate. To do this I must actually see the high resolution photos of the piece, examine and document before I can give a written appraisal. l would only advise getting a written appraisal if your artwork has significant value, such as over $5000.00.

Can you help me sell my art after you appraise it?

In general, I can help you sell your art if it has enough value.  I have a large group of clients with OVER $10,000,000 to spend. I charge 10% to the buyer, there is NO fee to the seller.  Learn more about selling your artwork. 

Do I have to sell you my art to get a free appraisal?

No. I do not pressure people to sell me art, I actively buy art, but I do not make a living by it. You are free to sell to whomever you want. I have an active roster of clients who will purchase, or you can find one on your own, sell to a dealer or try the auction route. I would not suggest Ebay, unless piece has little value.
