Art for Life

In order to create a balance between artwork and frame, each project requires consultation between framer and owner. This may be a quick, easy decision or it may take some time to play with options before making a final decision (either way, I can help).

I have a good selection of frame mouldings to choose from and offer a range of products that suit most budgets (from works requiring the use of standard acid free materials to those needing conservation and museum grade materials).

20+ years experience

I have been providing picture hanging and art installation services for more than 20 years. I am able to undertake big, small, private and commercial jobs.

After your initial contact and discussion regarding required work (arranging a time for me to visit if necessary), I will either provide an obligation free quote or, if in agreement, work at a set hourly rate. I am usually quite flexible with days and times and projects can often be completed quickly (depending on current workloads).






Artwork Photography + Fine Art Printing

Many of my photographs have been published in New Zealand's top art magazines and newspapers and have been involved in a couple of art books (see SHOP page of this website).

The digitizing of photographic film (positive and negative) and photo retouching is one of my specialties. Digital repair of damaged photographs is also a service.

Trained in intaglio printing by my father John Drawbridge, I offer a technical printing service to the public (for both professional and amateur printmakers).


Let's Talk

I have recently edited, photographed, designed and published the book Tanya Ashken: Jeweller, Silversmith, Sculptor (see SHOP page of this website).

Whatever project you are needing assistance in bringing to life, let's talk.
