Hello! We’re Striving Artists.  🙂

We’re a family owned brick and mortar picture framing shop.

We make award winning custom frames and

large format prints in beautiful Southern California.

Take a look around & don’t be shy.

We create awesome frames for you!


Truth be told, custom picture framing may seem daunting. How to choose from hundreds of moulding styles and frame designs? How to find a high quality framer? What is a fair price?

Welcome to Striving Artists, where our expert team will take care of you and all of your framing needs. Since 1978, we have brought the same sensibility to our craft: we want you to be happy and proudly display your art and memorabilia in unique custom frames and shadow boxes!

Collect pop art? Let us make your art pop.

Concerned about a classic? Our conservation approach is first class.

Got a dated frame? Make a date with us to re-frame.

Want to display memorabilia? We’ll make a memorable shadow box display.

Our process has you, our customer, in mind. We developed a fair and competitive pricing structure for custom framing to provide you with an exceptional value. We offer a range of materials and finishes. We have also created our own design, build, and mounting techniques to “…frame anything that can’t walk away!®”.

Oh, and we have won a bunch of awards, too.

So, why settle for boring design and frames? Your art deserves better!

"OMG!!! I've been framing with Striving Artists since 1993. All of my pieces are so amazing. I love working with J, Boris and Marina. They always guide me towards the most artistic and creative frames... But this most recent piece is above and beyond all my expectations! My Arthur Parton painting circa 1870 looks like I stole it out of the Louvre in Paris! Wow! If you want a one of a kind frame, you must go to Striving Artists! You won't be disappointed."

Jacqueline De Champlon
