About

I offer assistance in fine art acquisition, appraisal, valuation, and brokerage services for estate and financial planning, asset management, insurance needs, damage and loss claims, charitable donations, equitable distribution, and potential sales. My written appraisal reports are compliant with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practices, an organization established by Congress to determine ethical guidelines for professional appraisal reporting. For charitable donations of works of art exceeding $5,000 in value, my appraisal reports comply with standards determined by the IRS for Form 8283. For less formal needs, I offer simpler valuation services for various uses.

I am available for assistance in art collection cataloging and research, and often act as a liaison with experts in matters of condition evaluation, restoration, and authentication. My work as an artist’s agent involves assistance with career development, marketing, and publicity. I also provide curatorial, exhibition, and writing services.

I have a graduate degree in art history from the University of Houston and am a member of the International Society of Appraisers (ISA). Through my involvement with ISA, I receive ongoing formal training and continuing education in appraisal theory, valuation principles, ethics, and law.

I have advised on nearly 1,500 works of art, and am happy to take on business of any size and scope on a project basis, hourly basis, or with an ongoing retainer. Please contact me directly at heidi@heidivaughan.com or at 832.875.6477. Thank you!
