Many of my clients often ask me this question, and it's actually a pretty interesting story. I thought I would start from the beginning and tell you how I fell into my fun and unique career.
It all started when I was in high school in Bethesda, MD and I was looking for an after school job. Being that I was a TERRIBLE waitress, I knew I need to find another way to make money. I was always good at arts & crafts and one of my mom's friends who was an interior designer suggested that I work for a frame shop. I interviewed for the job, thus starting my career in picture framing. Working at this frame shop taught me the basics of framing - sizing, matting, how to put a frame together, etc. I began working there at the age of 15 and continued through college when I would come home for breaks.
