Park West Auctioneer Reflects on Park West at Sea

Here at Park West, we continue to enjoy all of the Park West Gallery testimonials we receive from happy art collectors after they spend time with Park West at sea. The comments about how wonderful the cruise art auctions are for collectors got us thinking about how Park West Auctioneers feel about their experiences with Park West at sea.

Below is a Park West Gallery review from the prospective of a Park West Art Auctioneer that we thought would be interesting to our collectors. Enjoy!


Park West Cruise Art Auctions"Being a Park West Art Auctioneer has been a truly amazing opportunity. I have a diverse background ranging from time spent in the military and police, to hotels, plus several years in sales and sales management. Park West has given me the chance to combine my love for and studies in art and history with my passion for sales in a way that no other career could have. I have traveled to almost every corner of the world…..

Of course the financial rewards are amazing, but without job satisfaction, the money doesn't mean much. I can honestly say that I love what I do! Introducing new collectors to the joy of collecting; seeing the amazement in people's eyes as I show a Rembrandt and relate the compelling story behind these incredible works; the excitement and energy of running a live cruise art auction for hundreds of people. No two days are ever the same! I still have to pinch myself sometimes when I realize that I'm enjoying coffee in Colombia, strolling down the canals of Venice, hiking over the rocks and tundra of Greenland, or sitting in the famed Blue Lagoon in Iceland….."

  1. This was a great post. I enjoy hearing about the different auctioneers, the people they meet and about their travels. I hope this encourages more auctioneers to post their thoughts as well.
