I wanted to share with you a bit about the beautiful frames that I have selected to go with my art prints and custom pet portraits so that they arrive with you ready to hang.
They are specially chosen to complement my art and also to look elegant in your home.
What are the frames made of?
I have personally selected a range of frames that work well with all of my artworks and size options and that will look stunning in your home. You can choose from a black, silver or gold finish. Find details of each option below.
All the frames are hand-built to order on precision equipment with conservation-grade materials by Guild Commended Framers belonging to the Fine Art Guild of Framers.
All frames are made from real wood with sturdy MDF backing and fitted with high-quality conservation quality mount board with white core which does not discolour.
My framed art prints are fitted with warm white double mounts with white core. Mounted prints (unframed) come with a single warm white mount.
Custom art prints are typically created with the warm white double mount but coloured top or bottom mounts can be selected to really set off the particular colours in your custom artwork.
Frame corners are precision pinned for strength (not just glued, which risks warping and bowing over time) and fitted using high-end equipment to push corner pieces tightly together and ensure precise corner alignment.
Frames are fitted with Clarity+ acrylic glazing which is just as clear as glass but with safety in mind and reduced likelihood of breakages in transit or in your home. Your artwork looks vibrant and clear from all angles and the Clarity+ acrylic glazing has high UV resistance and will not yellow over time. It’s also resistant to scratches (but still treat it gently – see care info below).

- To fit artwork 500mm x 500mm (approx 20" x 20")
But bespoke sizes are available on request.
How do I care for my artwork and frames?
Avoid hanging your artwork in direct sunlight, close to a fireplace or radiator, or in a moist environment such as a bathroom.
Simply wipe frames gently with a soft cloth or feather duster. Avoid using cleaning sprays on the frames.
To clean the acrylic glazing in your frame, dampen a soft cloth with water and wipe gently. Do not spray household cleaners onto the glazing.
Will my Artwork be Sent Safely?
Framed art is sent in a tough cardboard box, strapped securely and with an inbuilt crumple zone that will protect the frame on its way to you. Clarity+ acrylic glazing, instead of glass, helps to ensure that there are no breakages in transit.
Mounted (unframed) prints are sent flat and protected with inbuilt crumple zone as above or with hardboard protectors in an envelope.
