'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

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
