One member of our team, Chris Hopkins, can transform a photograph you have of a precious loved one into an oil portrait so beautiful, it will look like a John Singer Sargent. And the best part is, no one has to endure long hours sitting for a portrait, which means you can surprise your spouse (or spare your children the agony).

Our archivists can encase a favorite Wedding or Christening Gown securely in beautiful or simple shadow boxes for you and future generations.

Happy Customers

Over the last several years Dee has done enough work for me to convince me of the quality of her framing. The whole process, of course, involves the beginning conversations about what the customer wants and the framing itself. I usually start out with some idea of what I want. Dee has always been helpful in showing me how to get where I want to go when I don't know the way. She seems able to keep that delicate balance between leaving the customer to his own devices on the one hand or controlling the choice on the other.

I have always been satisfied with the quality of Dee's work. Just today my secretary brought home a framed piece done by Dee and it is beautiful. So I recommend Dee McQuesten highly as a framer and a sensitive professional.
