Recent testimonials about Framing Services:

“Petra Hewson has been doing our framing for over ten years. Her extensive selection of frames and matting and ability to choose the best colour, texture and style to enhance a painting or photograph is exceptional. We are always so pleased with the finished result.  Even though we live in Oakville… we would not go anywhere else.”

– Michael and Barbara Stein
