Premium quality custom framing to suit any budget.
Examples of recent work can be found here.
Original works of art, limited edition prints, or memorabilia of any value, be it financial or sentimental, should be protected by a high-quality picture frame. Whether you are a collector, an artist or simply have an eye for quality, my beautiful and unique frames will ensure your art is tastefully displayed and protected for a lifetime.
I am fully conversant in the latest conservation-framing techniques and contemporary presentation styles, including float-mounting and shadow-box frames. Although superior-quality custom framing requires high-quality materials, it needn’t cost a fortune so long as a few basic principles are adhered to and I can tailor my services to help find a solution to suit almost any budget.
I have over a decade of experience in the industry and have framed original artworks made using a variety of different materials, often with their own unique challenges, from delicate paper-cut collages like the piece above by Yola & Daria, to heavy mosaics, textile works and mixed-media pieces.
My standard frames are made from Tasmanian Oak, a sustainably-grown Australian hardwood. I create my own custom timber stain mixes and can colour-match to suit the artwork itself or to match the décor in which it to be hung, from rich wood tones to wild and saturated colours.
All paper works are held in place with water-release adhesive tabs. I DO NOT use glue or double-sided tape when mounting artwork and everything I do is both fully reversible and done with the long-term preservation of the artwork in mind. Textile works and sports memorabilia are stitched and, for more complicated or unusual pieces, I will find non-invasive installation technique. Adhesives will only be used as a last resort and only ever after clear consultation with the client.
All mats and backing boards are acid-free and all my frames are fitted with 99% UV-resistant, conservation grade glass which will protect the work from fading for a lifetime. Non-reflective glass and acrylic are also available.
For something special I can also produce unique hand-crafted custom mouldings in contemporary or traditional styles using reclaimed or exotic timbers, including classical mouldings and modern live-edge frames like the piece below made from native Yellow Box timber.
I also stretch and frame canvases and frame canvases, carrying out minor repairs if required such as steaming to remove buckling and strip-lining to stretch canvases which have become too fragile or are painted too close to the edge to safely stretch. I can even patch and fill holes in damaged paintings.
I can also repair or retrofit vintage frames with replacement mats or glass to house new works or simply bring an old frame up to the latest conservation standards.
