A fair proportion of my framing work is for people who are wanting something re-framed. 

Whether that be because the original has been damaged, or they've changed the style of their home and want something more fitting. But a lot of the re-frames I do are because the pe...

I'm going to head off on a tangent here, so bear with me. 

This isn't going to be about Art in the traditional sense. Instead I'm going to talk about an ancient craft; in fact two ancient crafts.

Over the past year or two, I've started to really step up my game with Resolute Framing.

We'll, we're a few days into October, and already you can feel the excitement in the air because October means one thing...Halloween. 

 

I don't know what it is about Halloween that’s so cool, and although outwardly I may come across as not that fussed at all, inwar...
