Artists Guild announces Janine Buechner, MCPF, won first place in the 2018 PPFA (Professional Picture Framers Assoc.) International Framing Competition. Buechner is Door County’s only Master Certified Picture Framer and one of only 100 in the world.
The purpose, goals and objectives of framing competition are to encourage the creativity of PPFA members, to establish standards of expertise and craftsmanship within all areas of framing, and to continually raise the standards of framing excellence and professionalism in every phase of the framing field.
Buechner showcased her creative flair and art preservation knowledge through a framed piece of a portrait of her husband, Andy, and stretched beyond traditional framing techniques with a hand-built frame of LEGO blocks.
