What a Difference a Frame Makes

Team

JUDY WILLSEY Judy has been framing since 1975, when she began working at her father’s frame store. Judy went to Parson’s school of design and was a former advertising copy art director. Through all of her jobs, Judy has kept an interest in framing and decided to run a frame store with her husband. When FRAMINGS open, Judy and Carter wanted to have the highest quality custom picture framing store and, because of  that goal, they were able to weather through two full recessions.
