I Make My Own Frames -

I hand make my own frames for my original art out of high quality real wood. Handmade and created with love, together with my framing team, we mill, miter and finish our real wood frames to perfectly fit the spirit of the original artwork. I find each piece of wood uniquely beautifulwith all it's variations and imperfections.

I’ve been thinking so much lately about persistence. How many times have you accomplished something you thought was impossible, then looked back, only to realize that if you hadn’t taken every agonizing step along the way, you never would have gotten there? These frames have been such a venture for me. I wanted to offer my work in real solid wood frames, with the ability to stain or paint each frame individually to compliment the artwork. Frames that are contemporary, simple and unique as the artwork itself.

I can't wait for you to see them!

Shirley Bales, artist

Shirley Bales, is a multi-generational painter. Shirley formally studied fine art under an accomplished forensic portrait artist and other notable illustrators in the 1990's. Shirley also attended workshops by acclaimed plein air painters, and exclusively painted outside for over 15 years to develop her acute color sensibility. Shirley attributes most of her technical knowledge to the Cennini Forum, comprised of forerunners of the Classical Realism Movement. Shirley has participated in multiple group and solo shows winning multiple awards and accolades over the years. Her work resides in hundreds of private collections nationwide. Shirley, now a resident of Colorado Springs, paints Colorado and beyond.
