My news, my views – Art, Antiques, the Law, Business and Politics


Welcome to my new website. As a journalist of 30 years and art market analyst, pundit and campaigner for the past 17 years, my interests are many and varied.

My role as Editor of Antiques Trade Gazette for the past 15 years has afforded me rare insight into the mechanics and issues of the international art and antiques market, and I have been privileged to work with some of the most interesting and intelligent people in business today.

My aim with this blog is to continue my work observing, analysing and commenting on the international art and antiques market, as well as on other spheres that interest me, such as politics, the law and finance.

I hope you find what I have to say interesting and entertaining, and I will attempt not to bore.

Read all about me on this website’s profile page and see the wide range of services my business offers, from Business and Brand development to Reputation Management and Editorial Services. Plug over… I will stick to topical items of interest in future.
