Lion Studios - Karen



Conservation Framing Adviser (CPF, MBA)

After starting her career in the corporate world, the arrival of her first baby initiated a shift to a more creative and family friendly environment. Upon embarking on this new challenge Kim completed a number of design and framing training courses with some of Australia’s most renowned design educators. After working from home as a custom framer, the opportunity to expand came with a move to the Bay and the purchase of Lion Studios.

Kim is passionate about providing the best quality framing possible and respecting each and every piece of artwork that comes to our store.  (link
