We create awesome (custom) frames!

At Striving Artists, we’re creators of award-winning designs and thinkers of fresh ideas. It takes a lot to be one of the most trusted framers in the country. We provide conservation framing, which means all our processes are reversible, by using highest grade materials such as acid and lignin free mats and mounting boards, UV blocking museum glass, optium acrylic, pH-neutral fabrics, and so on. Our visualization station allows us to show you how your piece will look framed. We invented many unique techniques, which allow us to implement any creative ideas.
We serve retail customers, interior designers, hospitality industry, and commercial accounts all over the United States.
Locally our customers are coming from Greater Los Angeles area, especially San Fernando Valley cities and communities of Chatsworth, Porter Ranch, Northridge, Granada Hills, Winnetka, Canoga Park, West Hills, Woodland Hills, Agoura Hills, Westlake Village, from Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, and many others.

"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
