Multiple Windows in Picture Frame Mat

A story can be told in a picture frame, with a window for each image of an event or scene. A custom cut mat like this takes planning and design. The client or framer needs to know where to place each image and measure the openings accordingly, these windows are custom cut for each individual image.

Multiple jobs at one time or in ones life isn’t that uncommon, I’ve heard that the average person has up to fifteen jobs, (maybe more). If you collect your business cards this could make an interesting story. Your employer may not change but the information on the card such as; name or title, even address, may change over the years creating an interesting collection of cards.

Personally, I like to collect anything with birds, stamps are famous for the bird image. This special stamp collection celebrating the year 2000 (seems like such a long time ago) was an opportunity to share my passion for birds and for the new year.

The coin in the bottom window is adhered to a little mirror with clear silicone so that the viewer can see the back. It adds a repeated element of reflection from the hologram in the second window.The unique stamp collection was matted with a white textured mat in a simple frame. An ornate or decorative frame would have been just as nice.

If you have any ideas that you would like to see framed please let me know and I’ll post an idea.


About artist and illustrator

I'm a textile artist, resourceful and excited about making things. Dog walks with my pooch "Charlie" is inspiring and an opportunity to develop ideas from nature and people whom we meet on our strolls. There is a story behind my art making, it's in the series, I don't make just one but many from the same idea, but! not one will look like the other, each piece of art is "one-of-a-kind".
