Frank is an experienced craftsman with 30 years’ experience in all aspects of painting and decorating, specialising in wallcovering installation. He is an Approved Lincrusta Installer. Lincrusta is a heritage wallcovering, locally made in Lancashire for over 100 years, a unique product which adds luxurious texture to suit classic or contemporary interiors. Both durable and versatile, Lincrusta can be used in a variety of ways, for example, a refined backdrop, unique bar front, or a magnificent feature headboard, and painted in any finish - add decorative effects for an infinite range of possibilities! 

Since starting out as a young art college graduate, with next to no money and a 1970’s mini clubman borrowed from a friend, Frank has spent the last 30 years building up a successful painting and decorating business through a loyal customer base and a high standard of service.  Throughout his career he has endeavoured to incorporate traditional skills, including Gilding, and Marbling & Graining faux finishing techniques.
A recent commission by Quite Simply French Restaurant in Lancaster, was to create two bespoke headboards for new luxurious letting rooms above the restaurant – Quite Simply Stunning!
Frank provides a professional service from plan conception to completion. Whether your project is a full refurbishment or a simple feature wall, a period property or more contemporary, using his extensive product knowledge and expertise Frank can guide you through the process to achieve the finished results you’ll be happy with for years to come.
Customer Recommendation:
