We specialize in the Fine Arts: painting, sculpture, photography, and artist’s prints. Our expert appraisal reports are designed specifically for your intended purpose, including:
Our appraisers are researchers first, which guarantees that the value quoted for your Artwork is based on a complete analysis of the many old and current art markets for similar works. Our reports carry the weight of that extensive research and reasoned analysis. With illustrated texts and appendices, our reports convey the evidence gathered, the methodology used, and the value conclusions drawn.
All of our reports comply with The Appraisal Foundation’s Uniform Standard of Professional Appraisal Practice(USPAP). Moreover, our appraisers adhere to the Code of Ethics, practiced by professionals who are certified by the International Society of Appraisers.
Send us some brief information about your work of art, and we will respond within a few days. Mention also your intended purpose for conducting an appraisal, so that we can be anticipate the appropriate direction to follow.
We offer a wide collection of Fine Art media, including painting, sculpture, prints, and photography. The works of art featured on this website also run the gamut in size, style, and historical significance. This diversity reflects the tastes of the many collectors who choose to consign with us.
We prefer to consign with regional collectors, those within 100 miles of Pensacola, FL. We therefore have direct access to the works of art themselves, and can assure any buyer that all have been closely examined and well-researched. Because of this guarantee, our consigned works find a national audience.
Contact us for information about hosting or buying works of art on this website. We will respond promptly to all inquiries.

Her degree in art history gave her the tools to conduct in-depth research, whether online or in the library.
