The Frame Shop at Lakeside

“…the last real frame shop in Reno.”
JoLynn W., customer, 3/25/2014

​Welcome to The Frame Shop at Lakeside, the locals’ choice for quality custom framing since 1974.  Look for us on Lakeside Drive at Moana, in the Moana West Shopping Center, just a few doors down from Red Hut Café, Ben’s Fine Wine & Spirits and ZOZO’s Ristorante.

DAN'S DREAM​

Dan brings with him over 20 years of experience including managing frame shops on and off for roughly ten years. Dan left the framing industry to focus on raising his daughter and working around children. After meeting his future wife, he was able to realize his dream of purchasing The Frame Shop at Lakeside in 2018.



Yuri joined our professional framing staff in July of 2013, bringing with her over 28 years of experience as a designer and framer, much of it gained from custom frame shops and galleries located in the San Francisco bay area.  Locals may remember her from the recently closed Powers Frameworks and other area frame shops.  Yuri earned a BFA with distinction in Illustration and Drawing from California College of Arts & Crafts.  She also holds a CPF (Certified Picture Framer) certification from the Professional Picture Framers Association (PPFA), the official trade association for the custom picture framing industry.




We welcomed Tina to The Frame Shop at Lakeside in January of 2014.  She brings with her more than 34 years of knowledge and expertise as a designer and framer.   Tina got her start in the framing industry here in Reno at the Frame-Up, which closed its doors in 1995.  Locals may also remember her from her 16 years at Art Attack in Incline Village, Lake Tahoe, where she continued to hone her framing skills and knowledge until the gallery closed in 2011. We are fortunate to have found Tina and look forward to many rewarding years with her here at The Frame Shop at Lakeside.




Emily has been with us for almost two years and we can’t imagine ever being without her.  She came to us from Las Vegas in July of 2017 and currently attends University of Nevada, Reno, majoring in Fine Arts and creating her own art.  Emily has proven herself to be an invaluable asset, quickly mastering the basics of framing and design and challenging herself daily to take her skills to the next level. We love her delightful positive energy and know you will too. Be sure to introduce yourself next time you’re in the shop and take a look at her own art that we are proud to display.
