With Over 25 years’ experience in the Arts and Antiques world, Susan brings a wealth of knowledge and humour to her subjects.

Her background in the auction world started in a provincial saleroom rising to become head of the Works of Art, Ceramics, Silver and collectables department. A chance encounter led to a move into the world of Fine Art insurance becoming a specialist loss adjuster within a multi- national company.

Susan has become known as a broadcaster for the BBC working on such programmes as Flog it, Bargain Hunt and Boot Fair challenge. She established a Fine art valuation business in 2003 carrying out valuations for Sale, Insurance and probate as well as advising insurers and their representatives in regard to claims involving damage or lost artworks.
