This stunning original painting by Melissa Hardwick is framed in a hand finished frame.  Supplied with a certificate of authenticity.


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.


Growing up in the Cotswolds Melissa gained, at a young age, a love for the beautiful English Countryside. Her passion for flowers, nature’s treasures and vintage finds shaped her love for working still life in oils.

Later, having studied graphic design, Melissa engaged her newfound skills in successfully designing unique pieces and running her own jewellery business. This enhanced her use of dynamic colour and composition.

All the while, Melissa’s enthusiasm for painting grew from a hobby to a career change. This journey has enabled Melissa to incorporate a greater understanding of the natural world coupled with enhancing her exquisite observational skills in both colour and play on light, to great effect. Her oil paintings compliment beautiful interiors both contemporary and classic alike.

Now based in the New Forest, Melissa’s professional career has taken her work into collections in the UK and abroad. Her work has been shown at The Mall Galleries - London, St. Barbe - Lymington, Inspired by Nature - Sir Harold Hillier Gardens Romsey, and The Cotswolds.
