Aline Cathy David / L'Atelier


With 25 years experience in the field of designing and making bespoke picture frames Aline Cathy David prides herself in giving a very high quality and personal service to all her customers.

Her approach and style in designing picture frames is based on her true love for artworks and the period they were made.

For many years Aline has been designing and making unique Orientalist gilded frames for a world-leading gallery dedicated to Orientalist works of art.

All her frames are hand made, hand finished using a wide range of techniques. She is also a master gilder.

Finishes include: Water-gilding. Oil-gilding. Crackle. Watercolour. Pastels.
She also invents her own finishes.

Aline would be very happy to discuss any project and offer free consultation.
