Following graduation from art school in Santa Barbara with majors in drawing and painting, we created, developed, and ultimately sold a successful design company in Emeryville. Then we bought a house and small framing business in the historic and charming downtown of Benicia.

It has proven to be a perfect fit: an income, time for personal art careers, gardening, fly fishing, and our love of dealing with visual images. Nearing thirty years in the same house, and twenty-five as BENICIA FRAME, we have become an institution on First Street. We are owner operated with all work done at our shop, and are grateful for the amount of repeat business and referrals that we get.

We still have the same enthusiasm and obvious enjoyment in frame design and presentation, fine craftsmanship, and pleasure in customer satisfaction that we found in our beginning.

Contact BENICIA FRAME for your custom framing needs.
