In 1972 I joined Terry Burns, the London framer, in his workshop. Terry, who later
on started Academy Framing at the Royal Academy, started my framing career. After
a break which included a spell in a folk rock band and two appearances on ‘Top of
the Pops’, I set up as an independent framer in 1982.
Since things that I have particularly enjoyed have been:
working with Norman Parkinson, the photographer
enjoying the wide range of things that individuals have brought me to frame
becoming the main framer for John Ward RA including the portraits of Princess Diana
and the National Portrait Gallery’s portrait of the Princess Royal
extending my range during a fifteen year year association with a dealer in abstract
prints until his retirement.
People have asked me to frame.
Pictures people have bought
Re-framed pictures people already have
Pictures for dealers and galleries
Pictures for homes which includes:
your own work
your children’s work
menus from memorable events
Certificates, professional qualifications
I can arrange for conservation and restoration of both oils and works on paper if
required. This would be undertaken by qualified and experienced professionals.
