What do you love most about custom framing?
Very seldom are days the same! We never know what clients will bring to the store for framing, and I love seeing what comes through our doors each day.
What are some of your favorite framing styles right now?
My favorite styles are the ones that reflect the personality of the client and/or their environment. We have endless framing options. People are so savvy, and I love working with clients or designers to achieve a framing style that feels archival. The composition of a work of art can expand beyond the frame and impact how you walk through a room. This applies to artwork large and small, gallery walls and stand alone pieces.
What is your dream project?
I recently worked on a project where the artist approved the client dividing a work of art into five pieces and framing each as an art installation. It’s so much fun to think outside the box.
What are some framing upgrades you would recommend that won’t break the bank?
Get creative with mounts and lifts! By floating pieces or giving a frame depth, you can achieve a very custom, beautiful look. Adding texture or color is another low cost upgrade that can have a big impact.
