You may have seen this online biography for Debra Stroud, but in case you have not, here it is:"Debra Stroud was born in Guildford and has travelled far and wide, having a variety of really diverse jobs. Her first creative attempt, at the age of two and a half, was to peel off the nursery freeze that her mother had applied to the wall minutes ealier.she has always had a creative mind and as a child she used to send her inventions to various toy manufacturers. One of her designs was for an all enclosed sledge encapsulated in a sort of gyroscopic pod so that you stayed in a stable position as you hurtled down a snowy hill.The company 'Triang' liked her design and sent her a kind and heartening letter and a doll's cot!Creativity was very much encouraged at her first school in Guildford. Music, art and drama were a daily activity. It was later, at the age of fourteen, that she was inspired by Guildford School Of Art and their photography course. She took armfuls'' of information home from the careers fair and enthusiastically told her parents. Her father said ''No way''! so she lost heart and left school. Much later she took herself to college to sit her exams and went on to read Psychology at Sussex University.She then left Sussex to study Philosophy in London.She draws most of her inspiration from the coasts around the South West, she has been very much inspired by places further afield such as the Seychelles, California and South Africa. she likes to paint in peace and to focus, and for that i need quietness.she works in both watercolour and oil - each is very different and which medium she uses depends on her mood, but it is the sea which draws her back each time." When assessing an artist's work, appraisers must look at sales of works by the same artist. Art gallery sales prices are private.We must then go to auction sales prices which are public. When using comparable work by the same artist, medium, subject matter and size are factors to be considered.Appraisers most often use price per square inch of previously sold comparable works by the same artist as a measure of value.Applying this standard method to prints, I was able to determine that your Debra Stroud artist's proof #17 out of 39 out of the limited edition 395 giclee prints would have a retail art gallery value of $570-620 assuming good condition.A private seller to a dealer can expect 30-60% of retail value.I hope I have helped you.If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.I endeavor to give realistic, honest answers in a timely manner.Please take a little time to give me a POSITIVE RATING now so that I am compensated by JA for my time and effort.
