Jessica Levy is an art advisor based on Long Island, New York. She founded JL Art Advisory in 2010 and also co-founded Hourglass Advisory in 2018. Levy earned her BFA at the University of Michigan, which gave her the opportunity to work hands-on with various mediums such as ceramics, lithography, photography, textiles, and painting. After graduating, she entered NYU for her MFA, concentrating in ceramic sculpture. In 1998, during her MFA program, Levy found a community of contemporaries that were interested in buying art, but were overwhelmed by the “new Chelsea” environment. It was at this point that Levy pinpointed her uniqueness in embracing the psychological connection of why people buy art, and began to assist her contemporaries with cultivating new collections.
Levy is now a mother of two girls, and her experience with art advisory has continued for well over 20 years. She has developed a strong and loyal clientele, both privately and corporately. Levy always has her clients’ best interests in mind and strives to educate them in looking not just at the ebbs and flows of the art market, but also at the power of connection between the viewer and an acquisition.
