Chatting to the BBC about her decision, she explained: "I was gently nudged in the direction of the antique trade and auction houses by my dad, who thought that I'd be well-suited to the environment. Although I'd never normally admit it, he was absolutely right!"

She also ran an art supply business with her father, and after Glasgow auction house McTear invited her dad to sell his work there, she went along and discovered her love of auctions.
