    About Us

    We are Patrick, Lorraine, and Natasha and we run our family business from our converted Railway Station in Newbliss, County Monaghan. We have been involved in the museum and heritage world since the 1980s. Organically growing since Patrick’s early days as a technician in Monaghan County Museum (which involved building scaled dioramas for display), through conservation picture framing in London, to Museum Display, storage and conservation supplies for the heritage sector on the Island of Ireland since 2004.

    Over the thirty years of framing we have framed an eclectic mix of items, from an original Monet to a pair of Y Fronts, and for a truly varied selection of customers such as, Ford, Inland Revenue, British Gas, Paramount Pictures, BT, RTE, Parker Pen, Dublin & Shannon Airport, No.10 Downing St., Museums, Hotels, Councils, Churches, Schools, Banks, Credit Unions, Clubs, Photographers, Artists and numerous private customers including Presidents, Prime Ministers, TV and movie personalities.

    Since then we have all worked both as freelance and directly employed by both county and subject specific museums. Natasha also holds a MA in Digital Humanities, specialising in the digitisation of historic documents. This experience gives us a unique position, understanding how the products are used, as well as being able to supply them.  With two generations working side by side we bring both sector knowledge and product know-how to our daily work. We source only from reputable manufacturers, mostly within the European Union to reduce both carbon footprint as well as costs, and work with the most reputable manufacturers in the industry

    Twenty Years of Business in Newbliss

    Our customers today are as varied as ever, ranging from individual conservators to the National Museums, from fit-out companies to local heritage committees, Light house to Cathedral, Libraries to Workhouse. 

    Living in History at our Old Railway Station – “we live work, rest and play history”

    Close to our hearts is our impact on nature, the environment and the wildlife that surrounds our home and business. We have created a wild flower meadow and each year add by planting more trees, hedgerows, fruits and berries preserving and building on the wildlife that has existed here for hundreds of years.

    As a family and a business we have always been committed to reducing our environmental impact and would like to think that we have been environmentally responsible at the same time making a positive contribution to the health and sustainability of the environment. All our production waste is converted into smaller components, and even what remains from these is reused as packing material and if at all possible all packing material supplied to us reused.

    All wood products are sourced from FSC certified suppliers. Any glues and paints used are to conservation standard, water based and environmentally friendly.

    We are the only company in Ireland to use 100% recycled green board in the manufacture of our archival boxes.
