Andrea Tucker-Hatch came to custom framing through her career as an art conservator for museums. After a move to Stettler, Alberta, an opportunity to jump into custom framing came through the acquirement of her shop, Cabinet of Curiosities. She has found the work very satisfying.
“I like the creativity involved in custom framing for clients and that it is never the same thing from one day to the next,” said Andrea.
As a former consultant to cultural institutions that are charged with preserving and protecting art, Andrea is particularly interested in conservation techniques. One of her favorite aspects of custom framing is coming up with innovative framing designs and materials that allow for creativity and adhere to preservation needs.
Though she has submitted to competitions in the past, this is her first entry for the Tru Vue® Framing Competition. She was inspired by the Tru Frameable Moments™ theme to participate.
“I’ve seen the competition entries evolve over time during my trips to the West Coast Art and Frame Expo,” she said. “I liked the challenge of putting together a creative and complicated piece and decided this year was a great opportunity to go for it.”
