'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

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

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 mat board 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.
