Resident Artist and Owner
Lisa Jeffery, the owner of the Sketch Pad, is the artist-in-residence as well as a wife of 37 years and mother of three. Lisa has been a life-long professional artist. For the past 23 years, she has dedicated herself to bringing attention to others’ artwork through custom matting and framing, but many are not aware that previously she was an art teacher for 18 years! She still accepts appointments for one-on-one instructional lessons in the mediums of oils, pens and inks, pastels, acrylics, and charcoals.
Whether you are hoping to have an original piece created or to enhance a piece of art, Lisa takes time to get to know what is important to each customer and their vision. This type of individual time with the resident-artist is not commonplace at other frame shops!

The Sketch Pad Custom Matting and Frame Shop opened its doors in January of 2000. In order to better meet the needs of the customers and accommodate more display space, the shop received a major face-lift with the addition of 200 square feet in 2009.
Each piece of art is customized, preserved, and perfectly accented as desired with beveled accents, fillets, layered matting, unique frames, quality glass options, specialty design cuts, and other artistic touches.
