ABOUT POLKADOT PICTURES & FRAMING
Hello, I'm Lisa and I set up Polkadot Pictures & Framing in 2015, having been framing pictures for family, friends and myself since 2002.
I have learnt my picture framing skills at a number of picture framing courses. Three of these have been residential courses in the south of England, held by an experienced London-based picture framer who undertakes work for museums, which requires the highest level of picture framing expertise. It was at one of these courses in 2015 that my tutor encouraged me to take the next step on the road which has led to Polkadot Pictures and Framing.

I live in north Leeds but have a number of connections with Collingham near Wetherby, where I lived for many years. I held monthly picture framing events at Collingham Memorial Hall from 2015 until March 2020, when I had to stop due to the pandemic. In-between lockdowns, I offered a mobile picture framing service in the Wetherby and Leeds areas, and I am now delighted to be re-starting my monthly events at Collingham Memorial Hall from March 2022.
My picture framing work has brought me into contact with many interesting customers and artists, and I am very happy to support local artists by promoting art clubs in the Wetherby and Leeds areas.
In addition to framing pictures, I am also a website designer, and previously ran my own advertising agency for 20 years.
Music plays a big part in my life too. For ten years I played clarinet with Collingham Band, and I have also been learning the piano for the last several years. My weekly lessons at Music House (previously called the Yorkshire College of Music & Drama) are with Mike Rodgers who is a piano teacher and music exam accompanist, and also organist at St Edmund's Church in Roundhay, Leeds.
But enough about me! If you would like to get in touch about picture framing or any of my other activities, please do contact me. I would love to frame your pictures and look forward to meeting you!
