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.
I've been a customer of Leslie's for years now and she has done an incredible job with framing my sports memorabilia (jersey's and autographed photos). Leslie is an amazing and truly genuine person and always does a fantastic job. I will never go anywhere else to get something framed, and it's great to be able to support a family run business.

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!

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
