Framing Examples


My Basic Framing Style

Sepia colored deep box frames - I use Larson•Juhl recently - with a good amount of space (a couple inches, at least) around the art. I often let the art wrap around the panel, and giving enough space around the art lets you see that. The larger the piece, the more room I like to give it to breathe.

The smaller frame has an inside depth of 3cm, the larger 3.5cm. This accommodates the wood panel’s thickness. A shadowbox also works nicely.


How I Frame Portrait Pieces

For the portrait pieces, I prefer a traditional style fancy gold frame. It plays into the concept and heritage of portraiture. Unlike traditional portraits, I still like to use a deep box frame. See basic framing (above) for comments on frame depth.
