Philosophy

Designing and framing is an intimate experience. I strive to find the design that both best reflects the client and their artwork. In that context, my first consideration is to the artwork. Conservation framing is my specialty. My first rule is “Do no harm.” This means that before I can even begin thinking about frames for a piece, I consider how to preserve the piece—which is why I almost exclusively use archival quality materials.

I respect what is old and appreciate that which is new. When I am designing for what is old I look to the historical references of that period to guide my framing. When I look at what is new, I try to imagine what the artist is trying to convey and reflect that in designing the frame package. I trust my designs so completely that I have an unconditional guarantee that if you do not like the finished product then I will do what it takes to correct that. I have a passion for what I do, and it shows in each and every individual piece.
