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 Rebecca's original paintings a 2.2cm wide frame has been selected with a white painted finish.  The frame style is called a 'tray' frame.  This is because the painting sits inside the frame with a small gap between the edge of the painting 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

Rebecca’s delightful, enigmatic and highly imaginative paintings evoke an eccentric world of plants and animals that appear to be happily confined within the boundaries of their own contented universe. 

Rebecca Campbell’s oil paintings are often referred to as ‘quintessentially English’ although much of her strong sense of design and jewel colours are inspired by her extensive travels.  

Her ability to create intriguing compositions, bringing together the exotic with the domestic, whilst adding a liberal dash of humour, is perhaps the key to her popularity.  

As a main stream player in the field of decorative arts, her work has been successfully exhibited worldwide and she has a growing base of collectors.
