Laura Sweeney founded LSS Art Advisory after a long-standing association with the academic, institutional and collecting aspects of the art world.  In addition to the aesthetic and conceptual appeal of art underpinning Laura’s practice, her prior career in finance puts her in the unique position to present art as a complementary asset class in a sophisticated investment portfolio.

With clients ranging from new collectors to established patrons, LSS Art Advisory provides expertise in identifying, acquiring, curating, and managing contemporary art with a focus on navigating the complexities of the current art market.
