Although a framing workshop has existed here for many years, it was when professional photographer Gillian Cumming took over the business in 2009, that we truly became established both as a 'Centre ofExcellence' in quality framing services and an artwork destination for a much wider community. Originally from Scotland, Gillian brought a wealth of experience to the Thames Valley, having just returned to the UK after 12 years working as a commercial photographer in the USA and Gulf States.
More Than Words was launched in 2010 by creative designer Lisa Long. Lisa's lifetime love of interiors, graphic design and typography, combined with a search to find a piece of original artwork forher own home, led her to follow her creative passion. I was struggling to find artwork that had it all - contemporary, premium quality yet reasonably priced, a great talking point and something that was unique and meaningful.
Lesley took up watercolour painting in 1986, shortly after getting married and moving to Maidenhead. Painting had always been a favourite hobby of hers however, and a sketch book always accompaniedher on travels to Europe as a student and on holiday. Lesley studied German and French at Exeter University, during which time she lived in Germany for a year.
