I started my career in the city at 16, going to work on the LIFFE floor. After a successful broking career lasting 20 years I decided it was time to reset. I took a sabbatical to live in Ibiza with my wife and children. I realised all the skills I’d learnt negotiating, buying/selling at the best price and delivering exceptional levels of customer service were transferable. I decided it was time to follow my passion for collecting art and make it my full time occupation. I established my own Art Advisory with the aim of helping clients build their collections. I build close personal relationships with my clients and this gives me a clear insight to their motivations and needs. Last year I curated and built 4 successful auctions within the Urban and Contemporary genres, selling over £1.3m worth of art. I live and breathe art, attending shows, auctions, talks, museums and meeting artists every week. Personal relationships, reputation and integrity are of the utmost importance to me, these will always be the driving force in all dealings whether selling at auction or via private sale.
