A child's first attempts at art - creatively framed with a simple stressed wooden mould and highlighted with a 3D matboard surround - will surely sow the seeds well into the future.

'I can't recommend the service from Australiana Picture Frames enough. Great price, great people and fabulous framing - 5 STARS...'   Georgia Beatie, Bathurst NSW  25th June 2020

'Did a brilliant job on my diamond art. Highly recommended.'   Helen Rixon

'Wal did a great job framing a large canvas and an oil painting for me. Great communication and reasonably priced, would gladly deal with him again!'   Helen Dingemans

'Wal made me feel comfortable from the moment I entered his studio. He took the time to understand the sentiment behind the pieces and the intended space it would be displayed. I was provided multiple options based on the idea I had in mind and the information I provided.

 

My frames are truly spectacular and have given new life to family heirlooms that I am proud to have hanging in my home. I highly recommend Wal and his studio, I will be back!'   Amy Munro, Bathurst NSW  10th September 2021 

'Wal has mounted and framed several varied pieces of art for me - ranging from small watercolours, photographs, large canvas art and an assortment of bulky school badges and ties. 

 

All have been very professionally and meticulously done and at a reasonable price. Wal listens and cares about your precious pieces and this shows in the finished products. I would highly recommend Wal and Australiana Picture Frames.'     Anne Llewellyn, Bathurst NSW  28th August 2022

'Wal couldn't have done a better job and was very helpful in choosing appropriate frames. Have no hesitation in recommending him.'  Kay Cleaver, Bathurst NSW  30th August 2022

A lot of effort has gone into collecting these family portraits. Framed with conservation grade mat and backing board and a rustic Winston Teak frame. This collection should be around in many years to come.

Medals & Badges

Boer War and WWI service medals, badges and unfortunately the 'dead man's penny' (a large brass medallion issued to the families of a serviceman who died in service of the British Empire during WWI) of local Bathurst hero Lt Col Charles McIntosh.

This collection survived hidden in a storage cupboard at All Saints'College for 80 years before this job was commissioned.

A deep black shadow box frame was chosen with purple and khaki matboard trim backing - purple and black being the colours of the 12th Light Horse Battalion - that commanded by Lt Col McIntosh at the time of his death late in 1918.
