Rosie brings a down-to-earth approach to framing and preserving family treasures. She believes that anything can be framed and has over thirty years of experience doing just that.
Mark Perretta joined our team last fall and brings a strong visual eye through his experience as an artist, culinary talent, and fabricator and installer of sculpture.
