Sue Harper – Picture Framer and Trainer
Starting out as an amateur photographer following years in the corporate world, Sue started framing her own photographs in 2005 to display and sell it at craft fairs. Enjoying the framing as much as the photography she started framing more and by late 2012, she was framing and working with wood in earnest. At that stage her focus turning primarily to bespoke frames; waxing, staining, and painting as needs required.
By 2013 Sue was framing for friends on an ad hoc basis and soon after River Crane Framing was established.
Not long after Sue joined the Fine Art Trade Guild, where she continues to spend time with other framers learning and sharing with them.
Sue enjoys framing and seeing the transforming effect a frame can have on a piece of art, whether a postcard, print, old poster or an original piece of work. If you’d like to see your favourite pieces transformed, email sue@rivercraneframing and make an appointment.
A workshop in the garden
As a teacher and trainer, Sue enjoys spending time with people and has great pleasure in sitting down with someone and together finding the mount and frame combinations that bring out the best in a piece of work. Working by appointment means that she can work with you with no concern that others are waiting.
