Meet the Staff


Our staff includes some of the best picture framers in the industry. We are always excited to make new connections and bring in new pieces of art to frame.

Tommy

Tom is a native to New Orleans.  After growing up here and settling down, he found his calling in the art and framing business.  Tom has a true passion for art and framing.

Tom is more passionate about the New Orleans Saints and the Boston Red Sox.  If you visit our shop, you will find that to be true.

Sheila – Lead Framing Artist

Sheila has over 20 years of experience framing.  If there is a problem with a piece, Sheila has a solution.  No wonder we say she can build an ark!  Sheila is our lead framing artist and has a true eye for picking out excellent framing choices for a piece of art.

Raised in New Orleans, Sheila is a true native and loves the city.  She is also passionate about raising Samoyed dogs and is a dog lover of all kinds.  When you drop in, be sure to ask her about her husbands dog sled team, she will be more than happy to enlighten you.

In her spare time, Sheila practices making stain glass windows and hand painted pottery.  Her natural artistry shines through her work at home and here at Avenue Art.

Cary was raised in Mandeville and is a loyal member of Who Dat Nation. Currently, he studies International Business at the University of New Orleans, but has always been intrigued by New Orleans’ art scene.

 

Cary believes that its the little things in life that count, and his attention detail is what makes him good at what he does.

Cameron Art and Framing Consultant

Cameron was born in California and currently studies film at the University of New Orleans. Cameron is the newest addition to the Avenue Art team, yet he is gifted in design. He’s got an eye for making visuals pop (after all, it’s part of his major), and a love of talking to people.

 

Some call him an artiste molded from the finest clays of ancient Greece; some call him a conversationalist to rival even the most daring late night talk show pundits- we just call him…Cameron.

 

If you wanna talk movies, framing or something whacky, he’s always game.
