Eddy Tillotson first started framing pictures in 1993 at the now departed ArtTech shop in Braddon. He has been the owner of Framing Pieces since 2005. With a stint as a hardware store manager and being the custodian and user of an enormous tool shed, he has the practical skills to solve all sorts of tricky problems related to putting unusual shaped objects into containers to hang on the wall. He is a keen photographer himself, particularly in relation to fires and the Rural Fire Brigade. You can see some of his historical Fire Brigade memorabilia in the Framing Pieces shop. He is willing to spend time and use his experience to help you get the best framing job for your special work.
Amanda McLean is a well known local artist specialising in beautiful pastel works. Now that Framing Pieces is carrying various ranges of fine art materials, it is great to have somebody in the shop who has real hands on experience in using them. She can advise you on all aspects of the art supplies and tools for sale in the shop.
Kristen O'Keeffe is the latest addition to the Framing Pieces family. She has known Eddy since they were both in the hardware business many years ago. She is also an artist who trained originally as a textile artist, now working in watercolours with a speciality in botanical painting. Kristen can combine those aesthetic sensibilities with the practical skills needed to make your treasures as beautiful as they can be.
You can have a little taste of the beautiful works of Amanda and Kristen by buying some of the greeting cards that feature their paintings, sold in the Framing Pieces shop.
