Our studio and workshop are located near the URI Bay Campus, south of Casey Farm, in Southern Rhode Island. We keep a flexible schedule most of the year and set hours seasonally. 

Summer 2020

The world has changed and we’ve adapted. For the safety of our customers, family, friends, and ourselves, Joe and I have decided to keep the studio closed to the public this summer. We will not be attending the farmers’ markets as well.

Having a safe space to work and protecting our products for you are our top priorities. I feel the best way to do this is to only have us touching them. 

Our company is in good shape and we feel we can continue to work and fill orders by selling online. The best time to reach Joe is on Fridays by phone and his turn around time for framing is approximately 2-3 weeks.

Orders are available for outside studio pickup or can be shipped. Framing jobs can be dropped off outside the studio as well by appointment. Some items may take longer to fulfill because of availability.

Please call or email Ashley if you have any questions or if you can’t find what you’re looking for online.
