What does Sketch offer and Who runs it?

Hi, my name is Luba and I am the owner & operator of Sketch Art & Framing studio. I work out of my own art studio, offering custom picture framing, fine art printing, and custom artwork services. See my art portfolio on my personal website (link opens in new window) to get an idea of the type of artwork I create.

Consultations are always free of charge and by appointment only. I offer competitive labour & material rates, so please do bring your custom framing project to me and we can talk about what you need within your budget! I will price match within reason.

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!
