I work with small to quite extensive private collections (600+ objects). The end result of my process is a complete digital management system or ledger (if you are old school). I have a background in graphic design and coding to efficiently work within any database. My goal for each client is a complete life-cycle platform, easy for the client to continue. I begin with photography, condition reporting, and provenance research. Then catalog to create a comprehensive and easy system that is made to fit a collectors management style.
I have a BFA from Appalachian State University, North Carolina, and a Master's in the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas from the Sainsbury Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England. I have been in the art community for as long as I can remember, modeling for artists, hosting figure drawing classes, hanging shows, and giving personal critiques. 
I interned and worked as a curatorial assistant for the Asheville Art Museum and taught art at Western Carolina University. My love of books is a gift from my mother, and you can sometimes see me at Downtown Books & News, where I occasionally work to satisfy my itchy fingers. 
Don't hesitate to get in touch with me for more information.
