Seonaid (“Shona”) McArthur is a certified appraiser of Fine Art specializing in Contemporary, American, and European Art, including painting, sculpture, prints, photography and some decorative arts. Since 2013, she has brought her passion for research, knowledge, and love of art from her years of working as a curator and educator in some of the world’s leading art museums including the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Musée d’Orsay and Louvre Museums, in Paris. Appraisals can range from a verbal approximation of value to a report that meets the requirements for estate settlement and planning, charitable donation, or insurance of fine art.

Accredited by the American Society of Appraisers, she is fully trained in the appraisal process and the Uniform Standards of Appraisal Practice (USPAP).
