Deirdre Hofer brings over 24 years of experience in the art business to Heffel. After graduating with a BA from UBC she earned a certificate in Business Administration from Capilano College (now University) while working as manager of a private gallery in Vancouver. She came to Heffel for the first time as Director of Condition Reports and Art Index from 2004 to 2008, before leaving to become the manager of one of Canada’s leading galleries. During this time she also completed the International Society of Appraisers Core Course in Appraisal Studies and the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice course in 2012. Deirdre is thrilled to have rejoined the Heffel team again in 2018 as Consignment and Appraisal Specialist, and looks forward to a future of mutual success.
Deirdre is also a practicing visual artist, and when not at Heffel she can be found in her Vancouver studio.
