It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.

Furniture & Decorative Arts
Alexis joined John Moran Auctioneers in 2020.
Born and raised in sunny Southern California, Alexis ventured to Scotland for studies in International Relations. She later returned to Los Angeles to earn an art history degree from the University of Southern California. After school Sotheby’s called Alexis to New York, where she built her career as a fine art cataloguer and bid department liaison. Her professional life took her next to Chicago, where she worked as a client services manager at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. Alexis’ knowledge of the auction sector and charismatic nature ensured her a wide range of tasks requiring her expertise.
Presently as Moran’s primary cataloguer for furniture and decorative arts, Alexis is responsible for identifying and describing a diverse selection of property for more than fifteen auctions per year, ranging from Mid-century an American Indian objects to Continental furniture. Her ability to shift gears on a dime and offer the same level of understanding and prowess regardless of the property in question makes her an invaluable asset to the Moran team.
