I recommend Dee McQuesten, who has done a fine job of mounting artwork here at Canlis (92 pieces). Dee is talented and honest – a great combination.

— Chris Canlis, Canlis Restaurant

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.

— Peter B. Ely, S.J., Rector, Seattle University

I write to provide my unqualified recommendation for Dee McQuesten and the services of McQuesten Framing. Dee has provided me with framing services for my home and office for more than five years. The diplomas and certificates that hang on my "ego wall" were all matted and framed by Dee, as is a piece of childhood art with great sentimental value that hangs in my home.

The members of my practice group here at Short, Cressman & Burgess periodically frame significant media coverage of matters pertaining to valued clients, and we always rely on Dee. The quality of her matting and framing is exquisite, the convenience of pick up and delivery (and hanging, if needed) is tremendous, her turnaround time is rapid, and she is a delight to work with.

How can I ever thank you for bringing to life a beautiful house. The arrangements of the various pictures is simply out of this world. Chris has sent photos of the living room...both before and after...I can hardly believe it is the same space. Your talent will bring joy to everyone that walks into the house...Again Thank You.
