  • Scott Dawson

    Scott Dawson

    Owner and chief framer at Dawsons Framing, 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 there 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 have 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 Framer’s convention in Las Vegas 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 Michael Jackson’s stage glove as well as having Ken Duncan opening our first exhibition in studio and framing for him.

  • Graham Reynolds

    Graham is master period framer. Specialising in gilded period frames, he has framed many prolific Australian Artists for Galleries across 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 some of his handiwork.

    Graham’s claim-to-fame is his work developing signature frames for the iconic Australian Artist: Margaret Olley as well as framing works for the Queensland Art Gallery.

    Graham’s work was mentioned on an ABC Show with Phillip Bacon. 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.
