Frames, oh I love you.

Frames as structures.

Frames are essential parts of some of my illustrations. They are a recurrent composition tool I like to use. Geometric or botanical, I love how they provide structure and support for a wide range of decorative elements and ornaments. Depending on their shape, they can be used to create a sense of balance or to draw attention to a certain area.

Frames as unifying elements.

They can also be used to create a cohesive look when combining multiple images into a single piece. Frames are a great way to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any work of art. Whether it is a simple, plain frame, or a more elaborate one laden with intricate details, frames can make a huge difference in the overall look of a piece. They can be used to create a sense of unity and completeness, as well as to bring together various elements of an image. With their endless possibilities, frames are a great way to make an illustration truly stand out. They can be drawn with clear lines or with a heavy etching style, they remain a great part of my illustrative composition.
