Picture Framing

I’ve just happily celebrated my fifteenth year picture framing. I continue to offer hundreds of different framing and mountboard options, all ensuring a truly bespoke experience. 

 

I have a particular passion for framing cherished prints and family photographs and love spending time with customers designing the right ‘look’ to compliment and enhance the image.

 

Transforming a print or picture into a wonderful finished piece of art is so important to me, so that the onlooker has something lovely they can cherish for many years.

 

I believe it's really important to enhance the picture with clever bespoke framing rather than overpowering it. The framing should make the image stand out and if done sympathetically, can truly bring out the features and colours in a picture. I think the framing should really be the second thing you notice when looking at an image - it should definitely enrich the picture and bring out all its best features but without you realising!

 

As well as the standard selection of glass, I also offer an extended range of speciality glass. For example, the anti-UV protection range, which is perfect for preserving the artwork from fading should you have an old cherished photo, rare, or limited edition print. I can also suggest a non-reflection glass, which is great for showing-off colours and detail if you want something to really stand out. 

All my work is produced at Conservation Level and the mouldings and mountboard are FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) and PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified.  This means they are part of the 'Chain of Custody' system that promotes responsible management of the Earth's forests and traces wood through the supply chain to ensure it comes from well-maintained forests with high ethical standards. 

 

Please find in this section some pictures of examples of recent bespoke framing I have undertaken, in addition to a small selection of my moulding range - I hope you enjoy looking at them.
