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.
WHAT IS ARTGLASS?
Standard picture framing glass is called float glass. This glass is used by the majority of picture framers and is perfectly acceptable for use when framing most limited edition prints but it does cause reflection and impurities in the glass cause the framed image to appear duller than intended.
To overcome these compromises all our original paintings and drawings are fitted with a speciality glass called ARTglass designed to reduce reflection and improve clarity.
Unlike 'non-reflective' glass which is etched to reduce reflection but has a cloudy appearance as a result, ARTglass is coated with a high-tech film, reducing reflection whilst adding clarity.
The example shown here is an actual scan of a print framed with ARTglass in the left half of the frame and standard glass in the right half. This scan has not been altered or enhanced in any way and clearly shows how ARTglass improves the clarity and vibrancy of the image. From certain viewing angles it appears that the glass is invisible.
Sarah grew up by the Cornish coast, and had a childhood filled with nature, wildlife and adventure. All of which helped to instil many of the values which she now holds for animals and our natural world, and which is today reflected in her artwork.
Her work is created using recycled magazines - reinforcing the eco-conscious ethos of her work - and her use of collage as a medium has developed to create a paint-like quality, which is often mistaken for just that on first impression.
After graduating from Falmouth University in 2011 with a degree in Illustration, Sarah began working as a freelance editorial illustrator with commissions from The Wall Street Journal, German Wings airline and Starbucks. At the same time she began working on personal projects, expanding her portfolio and selling her artwork through a number of galleries, during which time her innovative use of collage quickly found popularity.
In 2016, she co-founded her own gallery and working studio in North Devon, and is now a full time professional artist selling her work to a global audience.
In March 2023 Sarah won the Ronald Morgan Memorial Award at The Royal Society of British Artists exhibition at Mall Galleries, as well as receiving Highly Commended by the De Laszlo Foundation at the same event.
In previous years Sarah has been a finalist in the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist Of The Year Award, which encompasses so many of the principles which she holds for our environment and world of nature.
