A native of New York City, Patricia, a former professor and museum curator, holds an MA in Asian art and a PhD in Japanese art from the University of Kansas. She has been conducting collection assessments, advising clients on acquisitions and sales, authenticating, and appraising Asian art since 1993, for individuals, museums, universities, corporate collections, attorneys, and insurance companies. She specializes in a wide variety of Asian fine and decorative arts, past and present, with special emphasis on Japanese and Chinese arts (especially paintings, Japanese prints, and ceramics - both historic and contemporary, and Japanese bamboo arts). Patricia works nationwide and travels to New York, Arizona, and Kansas City areas regularly, so clients in those places generally do not incur long-distance travel expenses.

Her long list of publications on Japanese art & design, and the connoisseurship & collecting of Chinese & Korean art in Japan includes three books: Japanese Design: Art, Aesthetics, & Culture (2014); Faith and Power in Japanese Buddhist Art: 1600-2005 (2007); and Tea of the Sages: the Art of Sencha (1997).
