About

Custom Framing & Artistic Design Creations for over 35 Years!

Art being my hobby and fascination, it was natural that after High School, I was hired on by a respected fine art & commercial art supply shop as a floor sales rep. I was a kid in a candy shop. I read their entire catalog inside out, and educated myself about the function of all their products. Sometimes to the frustration of the owners with my endless questions. Having been taught penmanship in school, I decided to train myself in calligraphy. Shortly thereafter, my commercial customers, started giving me commissions for calligraphy jobs. With my background knowledge of art materials, my opinion became valuable for colour choices and trouble shooting commercial and fine art challenges. I became the stores' Floor Consultant for 6 years. When the owners retired and sold to a large corporation, they offered me the position as manager. I declined. My intention was to go into business for myself. My Uncle, an established business man, rented me a small area in his warehouse. This is where I trained myself to become a Custom Picture Framer. Experience is the teacher. So, through trial and error I gained valuable picture framing knowledge.
I trusted the creative process. When presented with any framing challenge, I would sleep on it, knowing I would have the answer in the morning. And I always did. At the time, I didn't know it, but I was following my excitement. My customers in the commercial art world, who were giving me calligraphy commissions, were now entrusting me with their custom framing needs.
A marketing agency approached me on behave of their client, a highly recognized design firm, to calligraph the proposal and layout the portfolio for the renovation of a palace in Saudi Arabia for Prince Abdula bin Turki. This project took me two weeks to produce. I remember at one point near finishing, I hand-lettered for 14 hrs. straight with 5 min.breaks every hour. I was totally wired. The pen took on a life of it's own. It just kept on moving. The success of that project drew the attention of other marketing agencies to me as a Custom Picture Framer and calligrapher.
We soon outgrew my Uncles' entire warehouse and moved into larger premises.
I was now working as a team player with marketing agencies serving developers & builders in the presentation of residential and condo sales centers. Constantly challenged to come up with innovative picture framing solutions and creative display ideas. I found my niche in the industry. Twelve years forward, we moved once again and opened our doors to the retail audience. We were delighted to bring 15 years of custom picture framing experience to the retail trade.
One of our innovative solutions is the 3D creations. It all started with solving a builders' problem: How to make a photograph of an exterior rendering into a 3 dimensional composition. The solution led into producing corporate logos and culminating into our 3D fine art creations.
So, why Etsy. Because we love the creative process and want to share with you our ideas and uniquely designed framing inspirations. We aspire to think Outside the Box. I consider my 3D creations as an inspired event Outside the Box.
We take pride in our work and craftsmanship and create quality products.
After all, each product bears my family name.
You know the saying, "Behind a man is a great woman", her picture is in the profile.
I couldn't have done it without her.
