Our Story: Artistic Roots

True DIYers, our Founders (and childhood sweethearts!), Joan & Steve Feinsod began making frames to complement their own art for sale at shows. Overflow made its way to friends & colleagues in their artistic community. Soon, there was heavy demand for their framing and they found themselves spending more and more time filling picture frame orders than creating art. Thus was the beginning of Graphik Dimensions Ltd. – founded with love in the den of their Queens, NY home in 1965.

Fun Facts:

  • Joan’s media of choice – Mixed Media, Pen & Ink, Oil Paint, Acrylic Paint, Pencil, Scratchboard, Markers (and almost anything else within arm’s length!)
  • Steve’s media of choice – Acrylic Paint, Serigraphs, Photography
  • Each year during the holidays, greeting cards handmade by Joan & Steve would cover every available surface in their home, so the paint could dry. To this day, their daughters Lauri & Robyn can still close their eyes and smell the turpentine!
