Finding the right Picture Framer
This page is where you can find out a bit more about Pure Framing so that you can work out if I am going to be the right framer for you.
When you are looking for the right picture framer, you will want to know that they will be able to help you to make good decisions about the design of your frame and the materials chosen for the framing package. Perhaps you also want to know that they will treat your framing with great care and have the right experience and technical ability to build the framing package to the correct specification.
To tell you about Pure Framing and how good the quality of service I believe that the most helpful endorsement is from existing customers who have had frames made by me already. Take a look at some of their testimonials (on this page).
About me (Jo Ronald)
I have been framing since 2011, training initially at the UK School of Framing. As a member of the Fine Art Trade Guild (the industry trade body representing Artists, Printers of Art and Framers in the UK), I work to their defined standards in their “Five Levels of Framing” and abide by their code of ethics.
My work as a professional picture framer started in 2015 under the business name “Jo Ronald Artisan Framing, and I re-branded under the new business name “Pure Framing” at the beginning of 2018 to reflect better what I am about as a framer. My focus is purely on using the correct methods and high quality and appropriate materials for the framing work that you bring to me, and making sure that I understand your needs and preferences. All the framing work I do is at “Commended Level” and above.
Pure Framing has a broad base of customers and I am an imaginative and resourceful framer who enjoys working closely with clients to make sure that they get a picture frame that suits their taste and purpose and protects their artwork, textile or object to the appropriate level of framing.
Framing takes place at my workshop near the village of Llangynog in Carmarthenshire. I provide picture framing services in Carmarthen and throughout Carmarthenshire, Pemrokeshire, South West Wales and beyond. To see a map of my workshop near Carmarthen, click here.
