  • "Best framers in the city, I’ve used and been their client for 25+ years. No job too small or large. ‘Can’t do’ is NOT in their vocabulary. It’s an absolute pleasure doing business with them."

  • "Esprit Decor delivers perfectly professional service. We have been using them for years for various framing needs and the end product always look wonderful. Most recently they produced a “shadow box” for us with a picture of a grand opening event, some ribbon from the event, along with a pair of scissors and a silver plate with the event details. I appreciate being able to bring in a vague idea and letting them create works of art."

“I have a fine eye for composition and finding the right light in all of the images that I shoot. 

This comes from years of being involved in the commercial interior design trade and from my painting background with watercolors. I tend to gravitate toward the small details in every shot but I love to travel and see the big picture too.
