Joanne, and her father before her, have framed many pictures for me over the years. Her shop is a real treasure trove of prints, art, and historical pictures of old Kirkham and Wesham. Whenever I go in there is always something new to see. What’s more Joanne is not only a real craftswoman but she also has a great eye for the colours and frames that will work well with your original work.
It was raining when I made the preliminary sketch which made it difficult to pick up the shadows as the light was fairly diffuse. The main woodwork is painted in Cobalt Blue and I couldn’t resist putting in the complementary colours in the window.
Her shop is located at 17 Station Rd. Kirkham, her telephone number is 01772 685855, and she comes highly recommended.
