Reframing – reusing existing frames with old art

I consider myself a resourceful person, so when I found this antique image of Fredrick the Great by William Camphausen I thought, finally a purpose for this fancy high lacquered frame that I’ve had forever.

Framing with the regular conservation materials; AF foamcore, archival mat and museum glass. The layout is made so that the image reads well with the text; a double window with a v-groove to connect the two images.

In keeping with the theme “antique” but “important” at the same time, I kept the colour theme neutral so that the aged paper didn’t seem dirty and the mahogany lacquer radiates “chief executive”.

This art and framing project would go great in a formal office or family den. I would love to sell this image and frame, if you or if you know of anyone interested in “Frederick the Great” please have them call me at 403-247-3255 or email me at

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".
