Graham is a professional picture framer and founder of Dragonfly Framing in Bicester. He started his career within the horticultural industry some 35 years ago. Having started growing fruit trees and shrubs in the fields around the south coast before moving into the retail sector. Latterly Graham spent a decade in marketing, winning awards from the Marketing Society for his efforts, before finally deciding to take the plunge and set up his new business in a completely new sector, Picture Framing.
With his keen interest in the arts, photography, the natural world and of course horticulture, Picture Framing was not the most obvious choice of a future career. However, his desire to present his photography to a wider audience and to find a creative outlet that offered a better work/life balance than working away from home the majority of the time was high on the list of priorities. His love of art and horticultural background, influences his photography, and the practical side of picture framing appealed very much to his practical and creative skills. Having invested in the tools of the trade and training Graham launched Dragonfly Framing in February 2017 and hasn’t looked back since.
