Our Team at Alan F Holmes Picture Framing

Each member has particular knowledge, with skills that are interrelated. As such, these can be readily transferred to ensure continuity.

Alan F Holmes
Alan F HolmesProprietor
For over 40 years, Mr. Holmes has been at the forefront of design and innovation with regard to the presentation of art and wall décor, having contributed to several books on the subject, and undertaken seminars and lecture tours across the world.

A number of creative framing techniques and use of three-dimensional effects that have now become relatively common-place, were pioneered by Mr. Holmes in the early 1980’s.

His original ‘invention’ of the “Mastermount Decoration System” resulted in sales to 33 countries worldwide.
