You’re never fully dressed without a frame!
A good piece of art is meant to last forever and when framed correctly, it should survive a lifetime. Parkside’s Frame Works Plus Gifts knows that the best way to share your treasured piece is by putting it on display — and picking the right frame can make all the difference.
Passionate about supporting her local community, owner Amelita knows her custom-framing business is a bit left of centre. “We’ve purposely created a space where the lighting reflects what a real home is like, not an art gallery, so people can actually see what their special piece will look like in their own homes.” Whether it’s framing a photograph, a piece of art, a certificate or something special, believe me, you’re in the best hands at Frame Works Plus Gifts.
Guests are encouraged to stay and play around with different colours and frames to make sure they find the perfect fit for their masterpiece. “We have access to more than 4,000 frames, with the most popular being black, white or oak. And if you want something really unique, I’m all for that!”
An artist herself, Amelita is delighted to also support not only local creatives, but another very special kind of person, too! “We have so many women who want to do something a bit different and make their mark. They come in with pieces
they have painted themself or bought from their favourite artist, and they get so excited seeing it fully dressed.”
Amelita is much like an original abstract painting herself — she’s bright, bold and has a story to tell. “It’s taken me a long time to find a life that’s full of colour, and I feel so lucky to be where I am now. I’m supported by my amazing business partner, Sergey, who is incredibly talented — and his attention to detail on every frame is phenomenal!”
And you really do feel that warmth and genuine care as soon as you walk in. “My favourite part of what we do is our old fashioned big reveal. Guests close their eyes and we display their framed work on the table for them to see. Some people even cry, overcome with emotion! That’s why we love what we do so much.”
