The Marilyn Denis Show Featuring More of Our Amazing Artists

Focus on Framing

Designer, Tommy Smythe makes a case for custom framing, which often gets a bad rap.

Talk to the artist
When possible, ask the artist or shop owner if there is a specific way they would like to see their work framed.

Don’t get hung up on matching frames
Mix and match frames for a fun expression of your personal tastes. Or go without frames all together!

Be prepared to spend
Custom framing may not be cheap, but it’s worth it.

Work with someone local
Develop a relationship with a good framer in your area. They can offer valuable insight to those who may be intimidated by the process or inexperienced.
