I have been a professional picture framer for 20 years and am a Fine Art Trade Guild Certified Framer and Accredited Picture Framing Trainer and Examiner.

My picture framing story began when I bought Artifax the Picture Framers in 2000.   I originally worked for the first few years from a rented retail gallery in Bartholomew Street Newbury where, in1987, the picture framing business had originally been founded.

 The business went from strength to strength.   The customer database kept growing and before very long I was able to buy a larger premises on the other side of the road.

In 2019 I was approached by a company seeking to rent the retail premises and decided to take advantage of the opportunity it offered.

I’d always painted, had become a fine art printer and sold both paintings and prints from 
the gallery; so it was an opportunity to set up a fine art print studio at home and spend more time creating artwork.

Not ready to turn my back on framing completely, I also set up a framing workshop at home.​​​​​​​
I now frame for customers by appointment and run Fine Art Trade Guild Accredited Picture Framing Training Courses and Examinations in the workshop.

If you are a returning customer,  have a framing project you would like to discuss or are interested in learning how to frame I will be very happy to hear from you.
