I am a lifelong resident of Brookline, Mass. married to George, and have three sons; Paul, (Med Flight Nurse) John, ( Brookline Firefighter) and Robert (Master Electrician).

Thirty years ago I developed an interest in collecting antique jewelry, silver and decorative arts. Gradually my interest grew into a profession. I began selling antiques at antique shows in Brimfield, Mass, Cape Cod, and at the Atlantic City Convention Center. In 1991 I became a partner in an antique shop in Dover, Mass. As a result of this experience I became more interested in learning more about 18th and 19th century furniture and decorative arts.

I enrolled in educational workshops and took courses at the University of Maine, University of R.I., Hofstra University, in Antique, Period and Gemstone Jewelry. I also took courses at NYU, in The Evolving Practice of Decorative Carpets, American and English Regional Furniture, Chapel Hill N.C., and the Evolution of American Furniture Design, Boston Architectural Center.

I attended and received my auctioneers license at the International Auction School in Deerfield Mass. I also have many years experience conducting home Estate Sales.

I enjoy working in the field of antiques and having the opportunity to meet many people.The experience of working with antiques has helped me to form very rewarding business and personal relationships. I realize that the key to developing strong business relationships is the ability to earn trust through good communication, and by being reliable and forthright.

I hope you find this profile informative and if you have any further questions about my auctions please feel free to give me a call.
