“In a beautifully appointed, classic Virginia-Highland bungalow on Courtenay Drive, Master-Framer Scott Engel has been performing artistic magic for more then 20 years. Scott has worked with individuals, private collectors, top designers, corporations and museums from Atlanta to New York to Europe. Scott’s talent as a Frame Artist is immediately evident in visiting his framing workshop.
Since he works out of his home, Scott says that it’s always a challenge to describe what he does over the phone: “People just have to come in a see for themselves.” Every wall and surface of his home and studio is a gallery and display showcase of unique and creative framing.
His goal from the beginning has always been to integrate the frame with the art. With careful attention to detail, this is done using a variety of materials to create texture, color and depth. The impact of the art is heightened with a frame that enhances and becomes as much a part of the overall effect as the art itself.”
