What have I been up to…picture frames.

Other than being an artist one of my few marketable skills has been as a picture framer. I worked in or ran picture framing shops for over twenty years before I decided to become a stay at home dad.

Four years ago we added an addition onto our small home and one of the things I wanted was a nice basement space that I could use for a picture framing workshop. Slowly I’ve been trying to add tools and a few pieces of equipment to the workshop.

Here are a few examples of framing projects. I guess I should develop a business plan and start advertising if I want to grow my business. Maybe in the new year.








I think it’s Thursday but it’s really Wednesday in the studio.


I’ve been working on a commission that I recieved from the Prince Edward Idland Council of the arts for the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference. The paintings are on board, and the work is coming along steadily. Some of the pieces I’ve completed will be dropped when it comes time to select the final paintings. It’s been awhile since I’ve worked on board and I have to admit I prefer working with paper.
