Sarah Orford

Auctioneer Asian Art & Objects / Buddhism

Their expressiveness makes Chinese drawings really lovely to look at.

Sarah Orford is a woman of action who has built up a solid track record in a very short space of time. At home she was always busy with art, but she also wanted to study French. French won out, which is why she went to live in Paris.

However, Sarah continued to be drawn to art, so she ended up doing a course called 'Manager in the Art Market', which focused on a hands-on approach. Immediately afterwards she began doing internships at auction houses such as Sotheby's and Cabinet Thierry Portier. This inspired her fascination for Asian art, and she worked for several years in a gallery specialising in this field. But Sarah still had not completed her education, so she decided to do a degree in Asian Art and Culture, which took her on a research trip to Taipei.

Now Sarah has finally found her place: at Catawiki! The hugely diverse range of items that she evaluates is enough to satisfy her hunger for learning. She has a particular preference for ceramics, ideally with beautiful decorations or Chinese symbols, which reveal more about the object's origin. Sarah is still in contact with various fellow students working in the art trade, meaning that she can keep up to date with the market and build enthusiasm for Catawiki at the same time.
