Born and educated in Thornbury I developed my inherited creative flare with an A level in Art followed by a Foundation Diploma in Art & Design at Filton College and finally graduating from Gloucestershire University in 1997.
Having learnt woodworking skills at a young age from my father, himself a keen hobbyist woodworker, and with carpentry being a family trade for several generations, picture framing seemed an entirely natural progression for me. My great grandfather’s tools are still being used today in my own workshop.
Having completed several specialized courses in picture framing and frame restoration techniques, I became a professional framer, employing and building upon the skills I had already learned.
As a Studio based framer I can offer a complete bespoke framing service, using only conservation and acid free materials, specializing in hand finishing and gilding. I also use a wide range of specialist glass, so that paintings, prints and photographs are cared for in the best possible way and stand the test of time.
You Name it, I'll Frame it!
