Before opening my picture framing shop in Squamish, I offered professional picture framing services from my own workshop in The Netherlands. I gained a lot of experience and knowledge by completing the Dutch school of artisan framing, by working for several Dutch picture framers, and I was blessed with two wonderful internships where I learnt the true craftsmanship. I got taught my profession on the highest level of framing, following the guidelines of the Fine Art Trade Guild (FATG) in the UK. As a result of my education and experience, I was granted membership of the FATG.
Custom art framing in Squamish
At FRAME IT in Squamish we do custom picture framing for almost everything, think of paintings, etchings and photographs to 3D objects, your sports memorabilia and textiles. With our framing, each piece is put on a figurative ‘pedestal’. We design a frame to fit your piece of art, apply conservational framing techniques and use archival materials while assembling it. Fine art framing is not so much about just putting a nice frame around a piece of art. It’s about knowing how to treat a specific valuable, applying non-invasive mounting techniques and preserving a piece with acid-free materials.
