A SALISBURY-BASED picture framer has won a prestigious national competition for his mount design with the help of a well-known cartoon character.

Jules Wright, of Fisherton Framing, won the award at the Fine Art Trade Guild’s annual Art and Framing Industry Awards 2022 in Stratford-upon-Avon last month.

The studio located in Fisherton Mill’s courtyard entered the Computer Cut ‘street art’ category.

As well as other UK businesses the competition attracted entries from the Guild’s many members around the world.

"Entering the competition really stretches your imagination," said Jules.

"Not only do you have to come up with a design idea but also work out how you can actually make it. I wanted to reflect the colourful and 3D nature of street art, creating a dynamic mount with depth and humour."

Jules, who started the business in 2017, used his state-of-the-art machinery to create the winning mount.

The technology allows an infinite range of designs to be cut and Jules has created numerous bespoke mounts for original artwork, medals and other treasured items.

His Rennie Macintosh mount design won the last time the competition was held.

Fisherton Framing also offers conventional framing and sells specially made framed prints.
