About John Jones
John Jones himself first entered into the fine art industry during the 1960’s, where he quickly discovered that he had an aptitude for making high quality picture frames to order.
It was not long before John was designing bespoke frames for internationally acclaimed artists such as Francis Bacon and David Hockney. The family business has since grown to encompass a staff of over 90 craftspeople and designers, experts in the presentation and preservation of artwork.
We now offer framing, artist surfaces, artwork installation, printing, photography and conservation, and have recently launched www.johnjones.co.uk/store where you can purchase essential artwork surface materials at your convenience!
