Michael and Pauline Masters  

“The Old Masters” of Old Masters Picture Framing

Our flair for innovative and creative framing, together with the quality of our workmanship has us constantly challenged, and has earned us a reputation of which we are  proud.

Of  the hundreds of customers who have brought their artwork in over the years, many are now regulars who keep coming back, knowing their artwork will be framed using the best methods and the best materials.

We are committed to providing all our customers with a quality service.

Our philosophy is:

“If you consider something is worth framing,

whether it be of monetary, sentimental or historical value,

then its worth preserving and framing well”


Michael is a Guild Certified Framer and Pauline is a Guild Commended Framer, qualifications earned through study and examination. The GCF examination was introduced by the Fine Art Trade Guild in 1998.
