I make my own frames for my artwork at home in my workshop. I don't charge much more than cost price for frames but prefer to send original art out already framed for its protection, particularly my pastel and pencil work, and to help display it to its best advantage.
I keep a limited choice of mouldings in stock as I am not a professional framer, I only frame my own work as required. I have an arrangement with an East Anglian supplier which I use exclusively for my materials. I sometimes offer a choice of frame if it is for a commission or if the artwork has been purchased prior to me having a chance to frame it (this does happen occasionally).
Below are examples of the frame mouldings I usually have in stock. This selection may alter occasionally as mouldings seem to go out of production quite often.
1 1/2 inch wormhole yew with gold sight edge.
Particularly suitable for more colourful paintings
1 1/8 inch distressed silver gilt
Particularly suitable for large monochrome work or more subtle coloured paintings
3/4 inch square profile bright silver
Great for small pencil drawings or more subtle coloured paintings
1 1/4 inch square light oak
Works well with just about anything
