Since childhood, I've always felt connected to anything creative. After some time in the graphic arts industry, I was looking for something to challenge my creative spirit. My cousin started a frame shop in Cincinnati which sparked the idea of owning my own shop here in Dayton. My family is no stranger to entrepreneurship, so it only seemed right that I should follow in their footsteps.
Since opening Valley Framing in 1989, I have fallen in love with the creative process of making each customer's piece come to life. I consider myself a match-a-holic and a perfectionist, paying attention every detail to make the final product as perfect as possible. After 30 years, I take pride in being able to work one on one with each customer to bring out every nuance of the artwork.
Along with my retail shop, I also do wholesale work and have framed for several area galleries and businesses over the years. I am thankful to have found my true calling in picture framing and I love my job more every day.
