Framing for Pet Portraits in Pencil

The portrait thumbnails below are all clickable. Visit each page to see beautiful photos of my framed portraits in each section. I collaborate with two wonderful framers for my portraits. Along with the clients input, we come up with the perfect combination of mount / matt and frame that will work well with the portrait along with the clients home décor. Hopefully viewing the portraits on this page will spark some ideas for what you would like. Drop me a line at any time with your preferences.

Engraved Plaques

Many of my clients opt to have an engraved plaque which can be placed on the frame or within the mount under the glass. We work with a wonderful family run engraving company in the South of the UK who have been established since 1899! The plaques can be any size with as many words as you require. They also come in either Silver, Gold or Bronze. You can see some examples by clicking on the image below.


Non Breakable glass

I mainly use a non breakable acrylics based glass for my pencil portraits framing as the portraits are packed and sent worldwide. We find it much safer this way. If clients are able to visit the studio they can have the option of having the regular non reflective glass if they prefer.

Mounts / Mats

Clients can have any colour mount they would like. As you can see in the framing sections above most clients opt for a light cream, however, you can have single or double mounts with the top mount cream and the under mount a grey colour. This adds a lovely contrast. Some clients opt to have the engraved plaques in the mount itself. Have a look at some of the photos in the framing sections above to see examples.
