When we decided to provide our clients with a framing service we knew we had to do it properly or not at all. Rather than offering cheap ready made frames, we wanted the best for our clients and our artwork. This is why we searched for a local framer we could rely on and trust to frame our oil paintings to "visually enhance our artwork and offer the ultimate level of protection". Clients spend a great deal on our portraits which will be displayed for generations, so it is vital they are framed using the correct materials and methods.
Only using the best quality mouldings and materials, Jane our lovely framer creates all of our bespoke frames. We have a selection of mouldings below which are clickable and it will take you to a gallery of portraits we have had framed in that particular moulding.
All of the mouldings we use are frames that we would have - and do have - in our own home. We have chosen a variety that work very well with our portraits. If you require anything specific to match your home decor, please let us know as Jane can usually source it for you. If you require help or advice, don't hesitate to contact us at any time.
Inner Slips for Bespoke Frames Inner slips work beautifully with our oil paintings and if you are interested in having an inner slip please let us know. The slip really enhances the painting as it sets the moulding slightly away from the painting and also adds depth and a three dimensional quality to the appearance of the portrait. We can provide two different sizes of slips depending on the size of your portrait. All of our mouldings work with the inner linen slips so there is plenty of choice. The slip also makes the frame slightly larger and draws the eye into the painting. If you have a look through some of our photos in the framing gallery by clicking the different mouldings above, you will see a number of photos of them framed on our previous commissions.
Engraved Plaques for Pet Portraits
If you would like to have a silver or bronze engraved plaque on your frame we can arrange this for you. We commission a family run company in the South of England who produce beautiful engraved products. You can order any amount of wording / lettering and if you are interested in this option please email us your requirements.
Plaques with 1-3 three words are £40. I have added juts a handful of the plaques clients have commissioned below. If you have a look in our gallery above you can see full photos of the portraits with their plaques on.
FSC- Certified Wood
The majority of our portraits are framed using FSC-certified wood. This means that the wood used by our framer is certified under the standards set by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council). The FSC label on our products guarantees that our clients can trust the sources of the wood - which puts all our minds at ease. FSC is a non-profit organization that advocates responsible management of the world’s forests. Its standards ensure that forestry is practiced in an environmentally responsible way.

Our oil portraits are painted on Linen canvas professionally stretched over a wooden stretcher. The canvas has a depth of 21mm and the edges are painted so that you have the option of hanging the portrait straight on the wall when it arrives. Alternatively you can have the portrait framed and our framer makes sure when when she is framing the painting, the canvas is not touched or damaged by the frame at all.
