The idea of HereAfter Frames came to me in the summer of 2012. This was a tough time since I had lost my father the previous fall at the young age of sixty-eight. At this time, I was professionally designing and building custom frames for my own artwork, as I am a commissioned portrait artist.
To honor my father, I painted a memorial portrait of him which helped serve as a reminder to me and my family, that he will always be with us.
Soon after, my beloved dog of fourteen years, Chase, was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Once again, the grieving process led me to paint. Chase was memorialized in the painting below.
After Chase was cremated, I received a brochure with urn options. It was at that moment I knew that I had to find a more significant way to honor my dog. That was the moment I thought of HereAfter Frames
HereAfter frames offers you a personalized tribute to those you love.
