Authentication & Research

Are you interested in buying a work of African art? 

Perhaps you have a work that has been in your family or in your organization's collection. Where does it come from? And what is it worth?

I can provide an objective opinion.

About Me

I have many years of curatorial experience, including dozens of exhibitions at the National Museum and Art Gallery in Botswana, where I worked for four years through the Swedish International Development Authority.


Most recently, I curated the reinstallation of African Art at the Snite Museum of the University of Notre Dame and authored the catalog Dimensions of Power  Dimensions of Power (South Bend: Snite Museum of Art, University of Notre Dame, 2018). My curatorial projects also include the 2012 reinstallation of the Eiteljorg Suite of African and Oceanic Art and  Dynasty and Divinity: Ife Art in Ancient Nigeria (2011-2012) at the Indianapolis Museum of Art at Newfields.


I hold an M.A and Ph.D. from Emory University in Atlanta and am an Associate Professor of Art History, Department Chair of Art, and Curator of the Eric Dean and Greg Huebner Art Galleries at Wabash College.
My publications and research focus primarily on modern art workshops in Africa and American collectors of African art. I am a recent contributor to the forthcoming book: To Give and To Receive: A Handbook on Collection Gifts and Donations. Sharon Theobald, ed. 2020. Rowman and Littlefield, New York with the American Alliance of Museums.
