Hi, My name is Sharan Nixon, proud owner and operator of Maitland Framing Gallery.
I started needlework at 12 years of age and took art classes at school. I reckon I was always destined to be a picture framer.
My first framing job was at the age of 23 in a custom framers, then to a bigger mass production and custom framer in Newcastle. I was leading hand with 9 people and jumping from custom framing to mass production daily.
I have always felt it was the best grounding into the industry. I had been working at Maitland Heritage Framing Gallery for a few years when it came on the market, the choice was easy, I bought it and thus Maitland Framing Gallery was born.
“Fine framing is an art in itself, and after 35 years, it’s still great to love what I do for a living.“
