Testimonials


“I’m so pleased that I found Jeni to frame my two Pre-Raphaelite prints. She knew exactly what colours and mounts were needed to create a frame that makes both of them look fantastic; in fact, she seemed to know exactly what I wanted, even when I didn’t. She’s extremely talented, and I know I will treasure the work that she’s done for me.”

- Katie Garner, Anstruther


I am stunned and delighted. I had tasked Jeni with creating a frame for the famous portrait of Rabbie Burns by Alexander Nasmyth. I'd grown up with this portrait greeting me each morning as I entered my school, and had rediscovered his poetry and songs when I lived in Scotland for the past ten years. I've since returned to the States and wanted this portrait to hang above my desk, providing inspiration and comfort, now that I've had to leave my beloved Scotland. Jeni understood the relevance of this piece, and created a wondrous, organic setting for this stately portrayal of the National Bard. The gilded sand slip, a feature popular in Burns' time, reminds me of Scotland's beaches - St Andrews, where I went to Uni, Portobello, from the years I spent in Edinburgh, and Horgobost, on Harris' Westen Coast, where I did my fieldwork for my degree. The concealed corners of the frame are soft and weathered, lending to the frame an aged effect, worn-in and comfortable, like an old coat.

Without being presumptuous, it is a worthy frame for The National Poet, and I am honoured, pleased and delighted to have it in my home. Thank you, Jeni!

“I am very pleased with the frames… You have selected the mounts and frames so well and I like your close attention to the finish. Excellent.I hope to have more prints for you to do in the near future.’

-Leo Norris, Ladybank

"I've had three items framed by Jeni so far and on each one the quality of the framing work has been fantastic. Jeni was not only able to accommodate my very specific requirements but also offered creative ides that really made the most of the items I wanted framed in ways I hadn't envisaged. In short, I would highly recommend Jeni Frame and I look forward to getting more pieces framed soon!"

-Dexter Bateman, St Andrews

Jeni framed three pictures for me and her service was excellent. Each picture presented its own challenges for framing - one in particular required specialist handling due to its fragility. Jeni offered valuable aesthetic advice and chose the frames and paint colours with a great deal of care and sensitivity to the images. The results are outstanding -  in once case, Jeni transformed a formerly drab image into an eye-catching piece of art. She was also efficient and easy to contact when needed. I thoroughly recommend her to you!

"We had some old Dutch picture tiles that we wanted to display in the kitchen. Jeni found exactly the right frame and mounted them beautifully;  they look really great!"

Jeni created some fantastic frames for the local interest prints that we have within the apartment {Cupar Burgh Chambers], including prints from National Galleries Scotland of work by famed artist David Wilkie who was born nearby – the work she did was incredible and she even helped to hang everything
