My name is GINA McGOWAN, I am the proud owner of AFICIONADO FRAMING. I grew up in a small town outside of Chicago. Ever since I was little I've been doing arts and crafts. Drawing, painting, crocheting, needlework, cross stitch, Origami... I always tried new forms of art. So imagine my luck when I landed my first framing job right out of high school! True artistic creativity finally paid off. I worked part time at various different frame shops until I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a business degree. Shortly afterwards, I opened AFICIONADO FRAMING in November of 1995. Through all my years of framing, I have gained extensive knowledge and hands on experience in the framing industry. My framing talents won me a honorable mention in a national framing competition in 2003!
When I am not busy working to create wonderfully framed pieces, I enjoy camping & hiking with my husband, two boys & two dogs. When I take time for myself, I find myself immersed in knitting. I'm obsessed; its my other passion. . . Well, that and talking!
Remember, seeing is believing!
