Hand painted frames to colour match your decor
Picture framing is a truly creative process and there are no strict rules on presentation. Each piece of artwork must be approached individually in order to allow it to shine through and give it the impact it deserves. A good framing solution will be visually sympathetic to the artwork. It must not overwhelm or fail to add aesthetic value,unless of course the purpose of the frame is to make a statement!
From a technical point of view a well constructed frame serves to protect the artwork and maintain it in pristine condition, and we are happy to advise on the best options for your needs. It can be difficult, if not impossible to choose the best framing for a piece of artwork without a personal viewing (although it may work for simpler projects such as the framing of film poster or certificate).
We are happy to give an estimate of cost and advice over the telephone or by email, but we would be delighted to meet you in person!
