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 Nicola's work we have chosen an 8.5cm wide painted finish over which is applied a light coloured wash with distressed gold highlights.

BIOGRAPHY

Nicola Wakeling finds her inspiration in the landscapes of the Outer Hebrides.
Nicola would visit family on the island of North Uist several times a year throughout her childhood; a childhood spent walking in the hills and playing on the beaches of this vast, wild landscape, regardless of the weather.
“It is the sheer scale of the landscape in Scotland that stirs me to paint. Walking on a Hebridean beach with the wind on my face, I look up at a limitless sky and feel tiny.”
Nicola’s paintings certainly communicate that sense of immersion and connection with the landscape. Her sense of space and sensitive handling of paint has allowed her to create images which convey the ‘stillness’ and calm of nature without losing any sense of its power.
Reflective, meditative, yet still dramatic, her work is a fitting tribute to the tradition of landscape painting in Britain.
