About Us

Estelle Tuvman

Best Picture Framing was an inspiration based on my mother’s love of art. Mom was raised in Springfield, MA and attended an art school in Connecticut. Next, she was hired by Forbes & Wallace, Springfield’s leading retail establishment. She worked in the advertising department as an illustrator. Her love of painting developed over the years as you can see below. 

Ken's father, Bernie, was a professional glazier with a keen eye for detail - always in demand, he installed glass & mirrors in many celebrities, including Cary Grant!

My goal is to make your artwork look great in a frame.  I've got a background in Glazing, Woodworking, and Photography - (2) of my pictures were exhibited at the MN State Fair. Having  worked in the glass and mirror business as well as a career in promotional advertising, I have a good eye for detail and have received several awards for outstanding performance from customers at Texaco and Shell.  

Pictured above is my son Adam and me - I"m the older one!  Adam works in our promotional division and I primarily do the framing.

I'm happy to discuss your art project and help you select the right frame and mat to accentuate your artwork.  Thank You!
