WHAT IS HAND FINISHED FRAMING?

Hand finished frames give a unique character to an original painting as an almost infinite combination of profiles, finishes and colours are possible.

Standard framing involves cutting and joining pre-finished mouldings to make the frame.

Hand finished framing requires a skilled craftsman who will first select a suitable frame profile which is cut and joined to make a bare wood frame.  The frame is then finished using a combination of traditional and contemporary techniques and materials.  Depending on the finish chosen a frame may take many days to complete as component layers are built up to achieve the desired result. 

The result is a completely bespoke frame made to uniquely complement the original painting.  To this end, no two hand finished frames are ever exactly the same.

For Debbie's work we have chosen a 2.5cm wide stained dark wood finish over which a wax is applied.  The frame style is called a 'tray' frame.  This is because the canvas sits inside the frame with a small gap between the edge of the canvas and the frame.  The front of the frame is level with the surface of the painting rather than the frame covering the front edge of the painting as is more typical.  This allows the frame to provide a border for the image without encroaching or dominating it.

BIOGRAPHY

Debbie Boon was born in 1960 and graduated from Loughborough College of Art in 1980 to begin her creative professional career as a graphic designer and illustrator.

Throughout the nineties and into the new millennium she became well known as a children’s book illustrator, whilst also establishing herself as a painter in commercial and private spheres.

Whether painting animals, flora & fauna, or portraits, Debbie aims to capture and convey her personal experience of the subject through colour, light and texture.

Working on canvas, she uses heavy bodied acrylics and glazes, working quickly at the initial stage to block in the main elements of the composition and then applying layers of paint to create texture. In this way she is able to create original artworks, that have an energy and vibrancy which reflects the ‘joie de vivre’ she feels when faced with a subject that captures her imagination.

Debbie Boon’s work has the ability to sit comfortably in both traditional and contemporary settings and graces the walls of numerous boutique hotels, including Michael Caine's signature restaurant in the Royal Clarence Hotel in Exeter.
