Acott Dawson, owner of Dawsons Picture Frames Gold Coast
Scott Dawson

Owner and chief framer at #Dawsonsframing, Scott has been framing for over 20 years since 1995. Scott has travelled extensively to visit framers from across the world to ensure that Dawson's offers our clients the best their is to offer. Not only in materials, but in creativity and precision.

One of the highlights in his career has been having Graham Reynolds on board. "When Graham joined the team in 2020, it was like having a celebrity master-craftsman come on board. The skills and value he has added are invaluable to us." says Scott.

Another highlight was attending the International Picture Framers convention in #LasVegas and being inspired by so many new technologies, creative framing ideas and materials.

The game changing framing moments at Dawson's for Scott have been the interactive framing project for #MichaelJackson's stage glove as well as having #KenDuncan opening our first exhibition in studio and framing for him.

Jacob is our 3rd year framing apprentice and stepping into his newly appointed studio manager position during 2022. His attention to detail and exceptional work ethic make him an irreplaceable member of the experienced team at Dawsons Picture Framing, Gold Coast.

Jacob enjoys the challenge of working on the #memorabiliaframes like #MichaelJordan, #MichaelJackson and horse racing champion #MakaybeDiva.

A highlight at Dawson's so far is reaching the point where he is able to manage client framing jobs while Scott and Graham are out of the workshop.

Graham Reynolds, Master Framer specialising in Period Frames at Dawsons Picture Frames Gold Coast

Graham Reynolds

Graham is master period framer. Specialising in gilded period frames, he has framed many prolific Australian Artists for Galleries accross the country. His wealth of knowledge, both local and international is inspiring.

Mr Graham Reynold's signature 'stern' look has been around the Dawson's framing studio since joining us in 2020. His #expertise in museum grade framing, gilding and machine profiles is unsurpassed.

You'd be hard-pressed to visit an Australian Art Gallery / Museum without coming across one some of his handiwork.

Graham's claim-to-fame is his work developing signature #frames for the# iconic #AustralianArtist: #MargaretOlley as well as #framing works for the #QueenslandArtGallery.

Graham's work was mentioned on an ABC Show with #PhillipBacon. He attributes his success to surrounding himself with people #passionate, skilled and successful in their crafts and learning to perfect his own skills from them.
