I fell in love with framing 20 years ago, during a part-time job in college. I loved everything about it: the customers, the art, working with my hands... and I always knew that one day I would have my own shop. After 12 years in the cable industry, I purchased my first shop in Buckhead Village in 2005. Several years later, and after much success, I moved on to make way for the "Streets of Buckhead" development, now known as Buckhead Atlanta.
At the time, commercial real estate was at an all-time high and a new space was not to be found, so I decided to try something completely different. I studied Baking & Pastry at Le Cordon Bleu and upon graduation worked in the pastry kitchen at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Buckhead. Pastry is an art in its own right, but I didn't have any contact with customers, and I really missed that.
I took over this shop in February of 2011 and am thrilled to be doing what I love again. I am incredibly proud of this shop and the work we do in it. All work is done on premises, by hand, and with the greatest care. Custom framing is not inexpensive, so I really believe in framing something properly, and framing it once. Do it right the first time and it will last forever. I take great pride in the work we do and appreciate our customers more than you can know. I hope to see you soon.
