Raised in New York, in a diverse family, Sharon was presented with a varied – and often entangled – assortment of reference points from a very young age. Exposure to diverse cultures and travels, combined with her Middle Eastern backgrounds, cultivated an affinity towards history, languages, and a most resonantly, art. After earning her BA in Economics, Business, and Philosophy at New York University, she attended L’Universite Sorbonne, Paris, and Sotheby’s Institute of Art, London.
Currently, at Kim Heirston Art Advisory, Sharon is Diretcor of Research, evaluating works of interest at auctions, art fairs, and in private sales. Previous work experience includes Eykyn Maclean Ltd., London; Simon Dickinson Ltd., New York; Bonhams Auction House, New York; and Leila Heller Gallery, New York
