All work is framed with high quality frames.  Oil paintings are suitably varnished.  In the case of work in pastel, European museum glass is used.  In all my years in galleries, nobody has ever had to return a single piece of artwork for any reason!

We are very happy to send pictures of the frames used on any work you have in mind, and work with you to make sure that you are involved with this process.  For now,  and here are a few examples of the frames we use.

This is a Hudson Frame:
