About this pro
I take the time to understand my clients needs and wants. I am a fine artist, illustrator and graphic designer by degree and so aesthetic is in my nature. I also have a minor in Art History and so relevance plays a part as well. I was trained by 'the Grande Dame' of art and influence herself Phyllis Weston in Cincinnati, OH. She was the VP and Director of Closson's Art Gallery for over 40 years and the curator of the famed Procter & Gamble Corporate Art Collection. She is also the founder of the Enjoy the Art Fund and what ultimately became the Cincinnati Ballet. For nearly 30 years I have worked with top notch Interior Designers to add the icing to their already exuberant creations both hanging art and framing it (both design and fabrication) as well Art handling, hanging systems, hanging hardware are all second nature. AND because of my background I am able to spot problematic pieces from the beginning (and fix them too). I am often asked "How do you even hang art?" This is a really good question and I feel it is worth sharing the answer. However, the answer is certainly not as simple as it seems. There are actually multiple considerations but in short the answer would be: It depends. It depends on several factors including but not limited to physical stability and aesthetic beauty. For physical stability one might consider: How big is the art? How heavy is the art? What type of hanging mechanism does the artwork have vs. (and even more importantly) What type of hanging mechanism SHOULD it have? What type of walls will it be hung on? plaster, drywall, brick, cinder block, masonry board? For aesthetic beauty and continuity of interior design one might consider: Where to hang? What would be around it once its hung? How high should it be hung? How tall are you? Ah yes, even this is a consideration These are only a few facets of the art of hanging. For me the most satisfying part of my job is being able to do what I love for a living and seeing the look on my clients faces showing how happy they are with the end product.
