With Joan’s extensive art background, she can offer her clients a knowledgeable, investigative valuation service for their fine art and collectibles. This service can be conducted either online or through private home visits. Valuations of art can be provided from your photographs or viewing of artwork in person by Artistic Statement.

Payment for private investigation is by the hour. As such work is generally time-consuming, a fixed price is out of the question.

Initial viewing of your fine art and collectibles is $100.00 (plus applicable taxes) payable at the time of engaging Artistic Statement fine art and personal property appraisal services either by PayPal or in person. A flat rate will be assessed when the appraisal report is complete.
