Director, International Head of Oriental Rugs and Carpets
Louise’s career at Christie’s began in 1998. In 2002, she was appointed Junior Specialist in the Oriental Rugs and Carpets department where she went on to be made Head of Sale in 2012 and Director and Head of Department in 2014. Following Louise’s extensive years of experience and deep knowledge of the field, she has helped nurture the extraordinary sales and record prices which have greatly contributed to Christie’s dominance in this category. She has been involved with a number of high profile sales, including the sale of three Safavid Kirman ‘Vase’ carpets formerly in the collection of Alice de Rothschild that sold for £2,299,500 in April 2016. Louise holds a diploma with distinction from the Institute of Fine and Decorative Arts, London and a Joint Honors BA in History of Art and Italian from University College London.
