No, thank you. Glad you're doing well.for 10 years, i was partner of a legal support service. i have been an artist for as long as i can remember. 3 years ago, i earned a diploma from the american picture framing academy. i have not looked back. thanks paul.
Funny you mention that, Bob. I agree completely. I'm not at all surprised by the diversity. I see it all the time at my classes. Picture framers absolutely cross all boundaries of life. I've had accountants, artists, pilots, MD's, laborers, lawyers and everything in between. Young and old, male and female. There is no recognizable pattern at all, unless you count a penchant for creativity. Framers are definately the most creative people I know.We're turning out to be a pretty diverse group! Guess Paul can't use this list of past jobs as a "mailing list" for his classes.
I got into framing Paul because I was out of work. Maybe you could blanket employment centers as possible framing class candidates
