Introducing Frames
 

Johnny Soriano, this gem of a man has been making handmade frames, from such rare woods as narra, for the past 23 years. He was and still is the framer of choice for artists like Ben Cabrera, Jerry Navarro, Jaime Zobel and Anita Magsaysay-Ho, just to name a few.

The late HR Ocampo once told Johnny, "You can frame everything except people!" His studio is filled with jaw-dropping original works from famous clients who have become friends, as a sign of their appreciation for the love and care he put into enhancing their works.

But don't let this bit of information sorts of intimidate you. Johnny accepts any kind of art, even kids' art. He might even persuade you not to totally change an existing old frame but just spruce it up. His appreciation of his art and his humility will amaze you, since he claims that when his clients draw up their own frame design, he is flattered by the time they took, so he frames these little notes scribbled on all paper as mementos.
