June 29, 2009

“John is a meticulous custom framer who's attention to detail shows not only in his craftsmanship of framing skills, but also in the manner in which he operates his retail business, Frame Shop Art Gallery & Gifts. Although a frame shop owner for only the past 5 years, John brings to the custom framing industry similar mechanical and design skills of 20 years in the Kitchen Design industry. His commitment to serving his customers well is illustrated in his approach to embracing technology and innovation within his frame shop. John is a active participant in his local Professional Picture Framing Association Chapter. John has an open attitude towards working and networking with fellow retailers and business people regardless to locale, while he continues to stride in setting his own business ahead.”
