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.

  • Took a few cheap posters and some family docs to be framed...price seemed a bit high for what I was having done but when I got it all back finished....was worth every penny plus!...cheap posters look like master pieces and docs look amazing!.

  • Leslie was an absolute DELIGHT to deal with. We came in with a very sentimental piece we wanted framed and a budget. She was able to do something absolutely beautiful within our budget and we are forever greatful for allowing us to now proudly display our newly framed artwork. 100% recommend her services!

  • 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!!!

  • I had the pleasure of working with Reflections over the past few months with a few pieces. We were moving homes and wanted a fresh start with photos that reflected us. I had emailed Leslie, the owner about framing a giant Muhammad Ali photo inspired by something i saw on Arch Digest (when i say Giant...I mean MUCH TALLER THAN ME) and she completely exceeded my expectations. It looks better than the one we even sent her! Reflections takes pride in what they do.. they are professionals at a very affordable price. We are continuing to use Reflections to frame photos and even sports memorabilia for my husband. I would rate them 10 stars if I could! Lameese
