Meet the experienced team of professional framers
Our team has a complementary set of talents; conservation to graphic design, and decades of practical framing experience. These skills allow us to meet all your framing and hanging needs.
We can enhance your masterpieces and transform any piece into a total work of art. Innovation and quality are our trademarks, which are particularly important in a world of mass produced flimsy frames. We want to give you a product that you will love and be proud of in decades to come.
We want to share our knowledge with you, so you know what to ask for the next time you frame your special piece.
The stories behind the pieces we frame, make our day. So come in and talk to us today
I started my studies in Agricultural 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 Bachelor of Science and later, Museum Studies.
I worked in storage and protection of collections for 10 years at CSIRO and 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. All that knowledge gained in conservation and preservation of collections as well as graphic art and design is now melding together in custom framing and the gallery. I offer our customers great designs with excellent colour choice and 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. Seeing people’s happy faces when they see their finished piece makes my day.
Framing is something that I really enjoy doing.
I love the challenge of taking your work of art and finding just the right 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 have framed just about everything possible to frame and particulalry 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 and run my own shop and gallery in this region, 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. You could say I am a “Jack of all trades”.
From this I have a deep knowledge of what goes into hanging everything from whale skeletons to huge paintings. I am your professional hanger of all things. I can 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 in your space.
(I designed and built the sliding wall system in the shop which allows our customers to browse our frame mouldings). 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 the public for 25 years I have a strong customer focus. I like to see happy customers and help them solve tricky problems with elegant solutions.
