Despite our love for collecting beautiful objects, we tend to only purchase accessories and furnishings by which were inspired. This also applies to the buying o f art and carpets. A piece must touch you, not necessarily ‘bankrupt’ you.
The collections in our house capture the essence of our travels and all the placeswe have ever been. However, don’t overlook our own backyard here in Singapore and all that Framing Angie has to offer. Some of our very favorite finds have come from her.
When I started my business in Singapore five years ago as a designer, I knew I had to have Angie design my frames. I decided it would be best to start with my own home before introducing her to my clients. I challenged Angie at every corner, and she learned and adapted to my taste very quickly.
The creativity that comes from Angie is rare and I love working with her as she thinks outside the box. I now send all my clients to her.She and her team always find means to accommodate my clients’ busy schedule and never fail to get the job done. Angie and her team are the best!
My husband and I came to Singapore with many Asian works which we had accumulated through the years, some never properly framed, others in need of an update, and a few in need of restorative care given their age and delicate nature. Framing Angie was recommended by everyone we asked.
Not only did Angie assist in arranging our collection, but she also took the context of each piece into consideration recommending styles ranging from rustic to refined,and surprising us with some cutting edge and pizzazz where appropriate. We couldn’t be happier with her work, and are always finding ourselves taking ‘just one more piece’ over to Angie for another job well done!
I have lived in Singapore for twelve and a half years. I remember after several years of letting things pile up I started asking around about a good framer. A close friend of mine recommended “ Framing Angie ”.
I went in to the gallery with my own ideas. However, after talking with Angie and learning how creative she was, all of my ideas went out of the window. Every item in my home whether it be a piece of art, a corkboard for the children’s rooms, family portraits, sports memorabilia has all been framed by Angie.
We have traveled and lived in the region for many years. Over time, we have acquired a collection of artwork. It wasn’t until moving to Singapore 2 ½ years ago that we learned about the talent of Angie. She has taken many of our pieces and transformed them.
She guided us in frame selection and gave advice on how best to show the work in order to accentuate the beauty and individuality of each piece. She is a gifted artist in her own right. When Angie started framing pieces, friends suddenly started asking where we had acquired our beautiful paintings. The right frame makes almost any painting look great. We have always been pleased with her work.
When I first met Angie over seven years ago I had no idea that she would not only frame and make my art beautiful but, I came to respect her in a way that was special. I am awed by her eye to take a simple piece of paper and make it look like a treasure that one would never want to let go of ! We are honored to have your work in my home.
Thank you Angie!
For the past seven years Angie has been taking my paintings, tapestries, porcelain, and other sentimental items and has turned them into absolutely phenomenal pieces of work. Her passion and everlasting commitment to her work has made my house an absolute pleasure to live in, making it welcoming and pleasing to the eye.
Living overseas for the past 16 years, I have never come across such elaborate and fulfilling work. Guests who come over frequently wonder whose whose hands created such magnificent pieces.
I always recommend friends to Angie with the knowledge that they will be as touched as I was when they get their first piece back from her.
I will be looking forward to her framing portraits of my children, knowing she will put her passionate effort and heart into it because in the end, she is the one I would trust to make something so close to my heart close to hers as well.
I have been living in Singapore for last fifteen years with my husband who is a businessman. We have two boys aged 18 and 14 who are currently studying at the United World College of S.E.A. I am an event organizer as it keeps me busy during the day when the two boys are in school as one can be flexible with the timings. I enjoy event organizing as I love meeting and interacting with people.
Angie and I clicked from day one. She is one of the most down to earth person I come across.
She is really very good at her profession and all my artworks are framed by her. I just leave it to her to decide what goes where.
When we first came to Singapore, we needed to decorate our new home, which had lots of white, blank walls. We asked our decorator if she knew of someone who could supply us with some unique Asian artwork and alsoframe some of our special treasures that we had acquired from our travels in Europe. She told us about Angie, which began a very special business and personal relationship with someone who is uniquely gifted.
Thomas Wolfe once said that…
“If someone has a talent and cannot use it, they have failed.
If someone has a talent and uses only half of it, they have partly failed.
If someone has a talent and learns somehow to use the whole of it, they have
gloriously succeeded, and won a satisfaction and a triumph few people ever know”
Clearly, this defines Angie.She truly is one of those unique people you meet in your life that has maximised her talent. Sharing one’s gifts is sharing oneself, and we are so grateful that she has done so because she has not only enriched our home, but also our lives. Thanks Angie for being so great!
I met Angie soon after our arrival in Singapore 6 years ago from Sydney and I had many paintings and photos framed by her. The wonderful thing is that they are all thought through and designed individually to suit each piece of art. Ranging from large oil paintings to watercolors and most recently works of Buddha images.The great thing about Angie is that she treats each piece importantly and considers the sentiments, size and colors before recommending a suitable frame moldings or style. I initially relied heavily on Angie’s advice. As I have gained more experience I have provided more imput and she is always very opened to receiving my thoughts and comments.
To ensure that the frame presents my work in the best way possible and also to use the frame as an extension and enhancement of my work – these are two key principles which Angie bases her designs on. And it became a great motivation for me.I have never met anyone with such a flair for framing art and craft as Angie. Great effort is put behind every piece of art and she takes great pride in her work. I will not hesitate to recommend her to anybody who needs the highest standard in framing.
Angie is a truly wonderful and talented artist who translates elegance into everything she designs and has done almost all the artwork,framing and mirrors in my home. She has turned undesirable architectural features in our home into beautiful focal points.
Angie is able to transform absolutely everything and anything into a real work of art ! Her visions and creativity give our home a one of kind designer feel. Elegant and classy.
Angie has been inspirational in transforming the look of all the art in our home. We started working with Angie five years ago, and once she framed our first painting there was no going back – she makes good art look great and great art look outstanding.We cannot think of going anywhere but to Angie for our framing.
Her artistic ability to transform the paintings lies in her eye for detail and quality of work which she never, never compromises on. As of today we can proudly say that all the paintings that hang on our walls are Angie’s trademark. We continually receive compliments from all our friends on the innovative styles of frames we have got. And we will continue to recommend Angie to all our friends and she can vouch for having a lot of references given by us.
Tom and I have lived in Singapore for over six years and now I cannot remember which of our over twenty pieces done by Angie was our first. We have slowly filled every wall with an Angie original. It amazes me how she keeps coming up with new and unusual ideas. She takes such pride in even the smallest of details. I love to stop by the gallery just to see what new pieces of artwork have been added since my last visit.
Going through her clients’ pieces is like taking a tour of the many travel destinations around Asia. I have learned so much about the area just by looking at the works of art she has framed. Here is a story behind every piece. I asked Angie once if she ever got bored with some of the seemingly common things she is asked to frame and she said, “Never!”. She is a true artist in every sense of the word. She loves what she does and it is so evident in her work. It is truly an honor to be asked to participate in Angie’s book.
I could not decide if I should write this as a client or as a friend because I consider myself both. Angie sees life in such a refreshingly real way. I am amazed at her intuition and spirituality. She has not only seen to all of our framing needs, s he has been a trusted advisor, a confidant and a true friend.
Angie is not just a framer. Angie is a dream maker.
