I construct and assemble hand-crafted, tailor made frames for most any medium out of raw, organic or recycled materials.  Whenever possible, I stain and preserve my work using only natural ingredients. and cold-pressed oils.  No harmful residue left over for the Earth to endure, and left behind is your beautiful frame.  One of a kind, and never to be repeated.
 

Below are various styles of frames that I have previously created, the possibilities of which are simply endless.  I can accommodate any inquiry or special requests through the message box at the bottom of this page.
