The Founders

FrameWorks, founded and led by Claire Lardner and Cris Sweeny, is a leading creative force in the healthcare, hospitality, Multi-family and commercial sectors. They both are Certified Picture Framers and Art Consultants who have emerged as leaders in the art consulting industry. What started out as a professional art and framing solutions company in 1989, quickly became a force in the art curation and art fabrication industry. For more than three decades, our endeavors have manifested myriad artistic visions into tangible reality, now adorning galleries, public and private art collections, enterprises, hotels, cruise lines, and private residences.

Birth of LS Art Consulting

The inception of LS Art Consulting naturally arose from the expansion of our services and the heightened focus on large-scale projects, catering to Fortune 500 companies globally. Long awaited, the brand now epitomizes our present-day identity. While remaining rooted in our values of quality, service, and innovation, we have undergone significant evolution.  The L and S represent the last names of the founders.  The image behind the letters is a phoenix rising, symbolizing rising from the ashes stemming from a family loss that reshaped the company’s focus.
