Introduction: Hanging art is an art in and of itself. I take the time to understand my clients needs and wants first and then translate their vision to their walls. I have extensive experience hanging art in residential, corporate and gallery environments and accustomed to the intricacies of it. Trained by a team of Interior Designers I view your art as a part of the room as a whole and understand how placement helps define and compliment that space. In addition, by degree I am a fine artist, and illustrator. So aesthetic is just in my nature. Compound this experience with a 30 year tenure in custom picture framing and you're getting the right woman for the job. 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.

I really liked the job she did getting some pictures hung and also recommending the appropriate placement of a piece of art. She clearly knows her craft very well.

She is very knowledgeable about hanging art and framing. After hanging multiple pieces for me, she fixed the back of some frames that were hard for me to hang. She is a gem!

Jupey did an AMAZING job hanging my wall decor for me! She was very responsive, arrived promptly, and even provided some creative direction when it came to hanging up some diplomas and plaques that I had to form a really cool collage. Some of the items that she hung up for me included a full length mirror, canvases, picture frames, towel rings, and other wall decor. I would highly recommend anyone book her! I’m already planning to book her to hang some more pieces for me in a couple of weeks!

Jupey responded promptly and was eager to take on major picture hanging tasks at our new home—way beyond our expectations. She was a pleasure to work with, professional and efficient. I highly recommend her.

Picture Hanging and Art Installation

I’m so happy to have found Jupey! I was tired of looking at my blank wall and I’d finally found something that I thought would make my space feel a little more like home. I always get anxiety about putting holes in the walls so I definitely didn’t want to take on the challenge myself. I could have hired a general handyman, but I really wanted someone with a good eye for placement as it related to height and positioning with relation to other items in my room. Jupey was very professional and didn’t seem to mind me “lurking” in the background and occasionally sharing my feedback. It was a great collaboration! I’m planning to include some additional wall art and will likely shift the configurations around a bit, but so far, I think it’s off to a great start!! I’m so excited about what this will become! Hire Jupey, she’s great!
