Featured Artist of the Month at Reflections Art and Framing is Rob Grimminck.

A little about our featured artist

From a retired industrial designer to an artist just waiting to be born at age 62, Rob Grimminck was born in Chatham Ontario in 1956. He is the 14th child in a family of 15. When he was 8 years old the family moved onto a farm north of London.

In 1989, he married Teresa McLaughlin. Together they raised 5 sons (4 of whom are now married) and they have 9 grandchildren.

Rob went to Fanshawe College for industrial design and worked for various companies. He was also a big advocate for adult education and published a few books to help adults to read.

After he retired, Rob began his hobby of drawing & watercoloring. Using his and his wife’s direct ancestors homes as subjects he taught himself to paint with watercolours. A year later, Teresa encouraged him to try acrylics and the rest, as they say, is history.

  • Leslie did a re-framing for me of a 16 x 20 signed Joe Montana Super Bowl stats photo that was originally framed by a so called "Sports Memorabilia" professional frame shop. They used mats that 6 years later polluted the inside of my glass and dry mounted my photo😠 Leslie used the proper materials for framing autographed photos which protects and preserves the life of the autographed photo and did a SUPER JOB!!! If you're looking to have autographed sports memorabilia framed do NOT just take it to any sports memorabilia frame shop and figure they will do it the right way, big mistake! After you shell out good money for that beautiful autographed photo educate yourself on archival framing and then go see Leslie, she will do it the proper way. Archival framing costs a little more but if you don't want your glass polluted or acid burns on your photo or watch your autograph fade away 10 years from now you have to do that. If your autographed photo was worth the money spent, is it not also worth protecting? Photo was framed with acid free mats and Tru Vue Optium Museum Acrylic. Thanks Leslie!!!

  • Leslie offers an excellent quality service! She certainly knows her stuff. Leslie went above and beyond with helping me with my DIY framing. The final product was exceptional. Will definitely be going back to this local company.
