Born and raised in Amsterdam, I grew up with Chinese art. With a mother as a former auction house department head and a father as a museum curator, I became fascinated with Chinese art objects at an early age. After my studies and three years working in Beijing, I started to work with my mother in the Chinese art field for a period of five years. During this time, we travelled the world looking to source high quality objects for our private clients.


Today I work as an independent dealer specialising in Chinese ceramics and works of art with a specific focus on early ceramics, Ming and Qing dynasty porcelain, scholarly objects and snuff bottles. My favorite part is to work with the collector – sharing knowledge and passion in order to start or build on a collection with both aesthetic and academic significance. 

Services include valuation of individual pieces or collections for any purpose, advice on collecting, advice on restoring damaged pieces, cataloging collections, commission bidding at auctions and selling individual pieces or collections.
