Meet The Experienced Team of Professional Framers
Our team has a complementary set of talents. From conservation to graphic design, and decades of practical framing experience. Combined together, those skills, allow us to meet all your framing and hanging needs. Come and talk to us about your framing needs big or small.
We can enhance your masterpieces and transform them into a total work of art. Innovation and quality are our trademarks. Quality is very important to us in a world of mass produced flimsy frames. We want to give you a product that you will love and still be proud of in many decades to come.
We want to share our knowledge with you, so you know what to ask for, the next time you are asking us to frame your special piece.
For us, the stories behind the pieces we frame, make our day.
I started my studies in Ag Science and changed career to become a graphic artist. I was art director in small advertising agency in Adelaide, before deciding natural sciences was really my thing. After 2 munchkins I returned to do a BSc and then later, Museum Studies.
I worked in storage and protection of collections for 10 years first at CSIRO and then the Australian Museum. My partner and I recently decided to move to Albury Wodonga. Best thing we ever did.
So now we work with the team at Finer Frames and Gallery and I am back into graphic design. All that knowledge gained in conservation and preservation of collections as well as graphic art and design is now melding nicely together in custom framing and the gallery. I offer our customers not only great designs with excellent colour choice but also the expertise to best conserve your precious pieces.
The best thing about custom framing is that I get to see fantastic pieces and hear the stories behind them and get to see people's happy faces when they see their finished piece.
Framing is something that I really enjoy doing
I love the challenge of taking your work of art and finding just the right framing components to suit both the piece and your desires.
I have over 20 years experience in custom framing and can draw upon a broad range of skills when framing your piece. I think I have framed just about everything possible to frame and I enjoy the challenge that comes with framing memorabilia, heirlooms and needlework, as each item requires its own methodology.
Having worked for one of the largest framing companies, run my own shop and gallery in this region, I feel that I can offer our customers a unique and timeless frame to enhance their piece of art. I frame with an eye for how colours and textures work together to complement the central focus.
I am now part of the team at Finer Frames and Gallery.
I have been a museum professional in security and facilities for 25 years and previous to that worked as a fitter and machinist.
I have an in depth knowledge of all systems relating to protection of museum collections and what goes into hanging everything from whale skeletons to huge paintings. I am your professional hanger of all things. I will install gallery tracking in your home, office or shop and help you hang that difficult or heavy piece, especially if you are unsure of how to hang things safely on your type of wall.
I have become a "Jack of all trades". (I designed and built the sliding wall system in the shop which allows our customers to browse our frame moulding selections). I am now doing an apprenticeship in picture framing and you are most likely to see me behind the scenes making up your frames or at your place installing gallery tracking.
Having worked with museums and the public for 25 years I have a strong customer focus. I like to see happy customers.
