Laura Solomon, a native New Yorker, graduated cum laude from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. In 1990, Solomon joined the Gagosian Gallery where her duties included special assistance to the director and research for the Catalogue Raisonné of Roy Lichtenstein's paintings.

In the fall of 1992, Solomon was hired by world-renowned Dutch artist Karel Appel to be his project coordinator. For the next seven years, Solomon oversaw all aspects of project and studio management, including: organizing museum and gallery exhibitions in the United States, Europe and Asia; working with publishers and editors on art monographs and exhibition catalogs; supervising the artist's participation as scenic and conceptual designer for numerous theatre works (Opera Noach, Zauberflote); and authenticating artwork for all of the major auction houses internationally. Additionally, Solomon was project coordinator for Karel Appel Sculpture: A Catalogue Raisonné published in 1994 by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers. During this time, Solomon managed the artist's studios in New York, Amsterdam, Florence and Monte Carlo.

Since 1999, Solomon has worked as a private art advisor. Her projects have ranged from high-end residential homes, to corporate offices, to development properties and hotels. Solomon places the greatest importance on honesty, discretion, integrity and resourcefulness. Her ability to address her client's individual needs enable her to create and maintain long lasting, productive relationships with clients and arts professionals. 

Solomon is the art advisor on the board of NADA, the New Art Dealers Alliance, and is an active member of the APAA, Association of Professional Art Advisors.
