Claire Russell lives with her husband, daughter and step son in Gloucestershire. She developed her inherent creativity with a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design, followed by a BA (Hons) degree from the University of Gloucestershire.
In 2000 Claire began picture framing and hand finishing frames for professional artist Christine Russell SWA. This soon grew into a business and after completing several specialized courses in picture framing, frame restoration and gilding Claire established a studio based bespoke picture framing business in 2002.

Claire offers a complete bespoke framing service, using only conservation and acid free materials, specializing in framing pastel paintings, restoration work, hand finishing and gilding. She also uses a wide range of specialist glass, so that paintings, prints and photographs are cared for in the best possible way and stand the test of time.

A good framer will always be happy to answer any questions you may have about the framing job and/or materials used, they may even show you if necessary.

If you are unsure about having anything framed, please see my guide on 'Good framing' for full details.

You Name it, I'll Frame it!
