A couple of kooks who had an idea.
We don’t take ourselves too seriously, even though we both spent our careers doing serious stuff. I (Robin), am a career marketer. I’ve pitched everything from hybrid neural network knowledge-based systems, to mobile workforce management software, to a payment processing platform. Steve is a career firefighter. And that’s really serious stuff. He’s helped save people, property and the environment, all while keeping fellow firefighters safe.
In the summer of 2014, I was complaining to Steve that the cost to frame my canvas prints was outrageous, and asked him why someone couldn’t make a frame out of foam that just wrapped around a canvas the way a phone case wraps around a smartphone. And Steve said, “I don’t know, but I can make you one”. And frames4canvas was born.
Between the two of us, we have four daughters; Melissa, Sarah, Alex and Dani who’ve cheered us on from the start. They’ve posed, posted, photographed and critiqued and have inspired us every step of the way. It’s been an amazing journey and we hope you love the look of our frames, and appreciate this low-cost way to make your canvas artwork pop!
