Jarvis Hall is a master gilder and wood carver of picture frames residing in Calgary.

He owns and operates Jarvis Hall Fine Frames and also Jarvis Hall Fine Art.  He has been producing hand crafted reproduction picture frames for the past 18 years.  As a fine art framer employed by the Paul Kuhn Gallery, Jarvis set about the task of learning how to water gild picture frames from scratch.  Self taught, learning this ancient craft by reading all he could find online and from books, Jarvis realized that gilding is not simply a technique but rather a calling.  He has created frames for many important works of art, with his frames travelling across the country and into the USA.   Jarvis is also a fine art framer well versed in the techniques and materials required to frame original works of art to the highest museum/conservation standards.  Framing for over 20 years he has seen almost all there is to see in the presentation of art, with the difficult projects being of great interest and importance for his shop to take on.
