I am a presenter and producer on The Art Channel which covers exhibitions and collections of Modern and Contemporary Art. I also teach at Christie’s Education (owned by Christie’s auction house) where I run the London Art Course and The Collecting Contemporary Art Course. I have lectured at The Tate Gallery, The National Portrait Gallery and the Design Museum. I can talk about a wide range of subjects regarding art history, the art market and museums. My experience includes working on a dedicated programme of talks on P & O ships in a partnership with the Tate Gallery. I have extensive experience giving public talks to large and small audiences.
My talks are knowledgeable without being intimidating. I aim to provide an engaging, educational experience that is friendly and inclusive. I am looking for invitations to speak to audiences at companies, organisations, events and on cruise ships which value education and learning. In 2018 I will be serving as a judge for the ‘International Color Awards: The Award Honoring Color Photography’.
Any aspect of Modern European and American art ranging from talks on individual artists like Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse to entire movements such as Impressionism, Expression or Surrealism.
How to understand and appreciate Contemporary Art covered in a wide ranging survey lecture or talks dedicated to individual artists such as Damien Hirst, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Louise Bourgeois among many others.
A history of the relationship between photography and art plus artists working in the medium of photography today.
I cover all aspects of buying and collecting Modern and Contemporary art. How can you start an art collection at home to building an internationally significant collection?
How did the great modern collectors assemble their art collections and what impact did their bequests and philanthropy have on the development of museums and a wider appreciation of art?
