Auctioneers Rae-Anne Forrester and Joseph Welton are skilled art educators, public speakers, and most of all, suitcase packers. Having visited over 30 countries in the past year alone, Rae-Anne and Joseph understand how connection is key, especially in the world of fine art. To the charming auctioneer couple, experience is fostered by friendship, memory, and imagination. These tenets are founded in their entrepreneurial spirit and transmitted to the homes of their collectors.
“One of the most important lessons I’ve learned working as an art auctioneer is that the story and context of any artwork is fundamental to our appreciation and understanding of it,” says Joseph.
“Why do we love what we do? We’re able to provide collectors with memories for an entire lifetime, while also creating our own special moments to remember,” Rae-Anne asserts.
