His innovative thinking, sound strategic recommendations and an innate ability to see the big picture has afforded him an enviable reputation as a leading Investment Art Dealer and Art Consultant. Having gained extensive experience within the realm of buying and selling fine art through auctions over the past seventeen years, Paul has amassed an unparalleled expertise across a variety of disciplines. With broad consulting capability, Paul provides a wide range of services, including: fine art valuation, strategic counsel, market analysis, art procurement and sales and consignment. Universally sought after by the art investment community for his expertise in the secondary art market, his commentary has been recognised by some of the country’s leading mainstream and industry publications including The Age and Investing in Art on the Net.

The wider artistic community regularly seeks his counsel and as such, Paul frequently presents at a variety of seminars on collecting fine art. Paul also makes onsite visits, particularly for Insurance Valuation purposes, where an entire collection can be documented and valued.
