“Framing can make or break an artwork. Many people believe that for the artwork to stand out you should just a white mat and a simple black frame. This may work on a black and white image but for the remaining artworks we see we believe the opposite. If you choose the right mat tones that enhance the colours in the piece and an appropriate frame to suit the era or style of the image, your artwork will look great now and timeless in years to come.”

JENNY O’BRIEN

Director

In 1995 Jenny joined the team at what was then known as “The Framing Corner- Hornsby” and by 2000 had bought the business, renaming it “IN THE PICTURE.” From a very young age she’s loved working with colour. ‘From the moment I could hold a pencil or paintbrush I’ve been involved in art and design.’ While directing at In The Picture since 2000, Jenny has also studied at various Art and Design colleges around Sydney, including Hornsby Art College, The School of Colour and Design, The Whitehouse School of Fashion and Enmore Design College. (her favourite) Jenny is now juggling small business ownership with her favourite role yet, being the lucky new Mum to her precious little one year old son- Will.

HEATHER SWAN

2IC – Design Consultant & Production

In The Picture was lucky enough to find this happy, bubbly and energetic soul just prior to Jenny going on maternity leave in 2016. Heather’s background and creative interests are in illustration, textiles and pattern making. Her current range of stunning accessories have just been released and are available for purchase in store. As In The Picture’s 2 I.C., Heather spends her 5 days a week doing pretty much everything! However, her particular interests are advising customers of the best colour and design choices for their framed work, along with the preparation components for the production process.
