Great news!

I just accomplished my Master Certification in Picture Framing with the Professional Picture Framers Association (PPFA).
A very difficult test given by my peers...submit 4 varied items to be inspected/reviewed (one textile, 1 canvas, one print, and one object)--then do a challenging observed framing in an unfamiliar shop setting, on the spot, within 90 minutes. Got the (mis) fortune of an oversized textile that I had to lace mount, but I finished it, and passed with a high rating. YAY!

I AM THE ONLY ONE OPERATING IN INDIANA WITH THIS DEGREE OF MASTERY.

And I'm one of only 30 people NATIONWIDE to have achieved this level!

Yes, I'm that good...LOL! Now I can teach other framers at conventions, and be on review/examination boards in my profession. Sweet!

Soo...if you need anything framed PROPERLY...
