Hollingsworth Fine Arts is owned and operated by Lauren Stump, ISA AM.
HFA is an Orlando-based company established in 1983 by paintings restorer Gary Hollingsworth. Lauren acted as Director of the studio beginning in 2012, and in doing so, inherited a rich understanding of restoration techniques and collections management practices.
Her experience working directly with fine art objects informs her analysis of artwork from a materials perspective, qualifying her to assist her clients with authentication projects and damage claim disputes in addition to valuation and curatorial assignments.
Having attained a Bachelor's degree in History at the University of Central Florida, Lauren applied her historical research skills to identifying and valuing fine art for various collectors in the Central Florida community. Lauren has maintained her designation as an Accredited Member of the International Society of Appraisers and USPAP compliance since 2012. She specializes in American and European paintings, American and European illustration, and historical and contemporary Florida artists, and has valued fine art photography collections, contemporary and monumental sculpture, installation/site-specific artwork, and entire museum archives.
She currently serves on the ISA Membership Committee and has served as President of the Central FL Chapter of ISA.
