The Journey:

Custom Picture Framing is my art!

For over 16 years, artbarn52’s owner, Susan Kaulbars of Bloomington, has been wearing many different hats in the Custom Picture Framing Industry. From Custom Framing Designer, Gallery/Shop Manager, Distribution Sales Rep to the industry, Educator, NCPPFA Board Member (the local chapter of the Professional Picture Framing Association), multiple times award winner framing competitor, and passionate enthusiast stressing ways to “enhance art (and sales) through proper custom picture framing”.

July 2015, she started her true passions journey and opened Framing Solutions MN. Framing Solutions is a residential and commercial custom framing design center and production shop (www.framingsolutionsmn.com).  Framing Solutions has been growing every month and she is very thankful for all the support launching her new venture.

Soon a new Framing Solutions APP will be introduced.  You will be able to upload your image from your phone or tablet, choose your size and framing choices. Your image will printed and framed LOCALLY supporting LOCAL small businesses!  This app embraces the new technology and the need for those who prefer, and expect, the ease of online shopping.

But…something seemed missing.  During her years as a Sales Rep for TC Moulding in Maplewood, Susan had the chance to work with some incredible Fine Art juried level Artists.  She realized Framing Solutions wouldn’t be complete without supporting these wonderful artists she’d gotten to know over the last years.

The place for Artists and Art Lovers to connect.

Ultimately, when you want something special on your wall, whether it is great new fine art, or custom framing designs you’ll think “I need to go to artbarn52!”

I hope you’ll enjoy our unique, creative environment.
