Art & Framing Supplies
We carry a very small selection of art & framing supplies. Some previous clients may know me as Sketch Art Supplies from 2011-2016. I closed my retail store in 2016 and now work from my home studio; however, I added a few art supplies for sale by request.

3D objects are photographed indoors under studio lighting conditions. Price includes Photoshop CS post-processing and all of the files you’d need for printing and website use. Prints up to 30″ on the long edge (possibly even larger depending on the output media; canvas hides imperfections, for example) can be made out of the photos I take.

Location, Business Hours & Appointments
I am located in HUNTINGTON HILLS, Calgary, AB. Appointment only (please call for address), so please contact Luba @ (403) 450-1917 to book a free design consultation for your next custom picture framing, printing or art commission project. See the portfolio for images of the work I have done to date.
Are you open during the covid-19 pandemic?
Yes, I am open by appointment as per usual. Please use the below contact form to get in touch.
To avoid unnecessary contact due to the pandemic, please get in touch with me first to discuss your project details. I use an awesome piece of software called SimulArt, where your image can be uploaded and then a framed mock-up can be sent directly to your email. In this way, we can discuss project details like framing choice, mats, glass, pricing etc before you stop in to visit me in person. I also have masks and hand sanitizer available if you do not have one. I ask that everyone wear a mask before coming to see me because my parents are elderly and my husband is at risk due medical conditions. Nobody wants to get covid-19 – that is for sure. Thank you!
