- Our Story -
Founded in 2010, Blue Sky Framing is a bespoke picture framers and art gallery based in the picturesque country town of Bridport in Dorset. Originally called Blue Sky Gallery, our time was split mainly between promoting original artwork by local artists and picture framing.
However, due to an ever increasing amount of framing orders coming through the door, the decision was made in 2014 to focus primarily on framing with the goal of expanding and specialising in the services we provide.
The gallery was downsized and refitted into the modern, bright framing showroom that our customers deserved and we still have enough room to support local artists by display some of their work as well.

Matthew Pithers, Founder & Chief Framer
Matt started a mobile framing business back in 2007 when he was 18 and then went on to found Blue Sky in 2010.
From the humble beginnings of Blue Sky until now, Matt has constantly been expanding on his framing skills and talents. Never one to turn down a challenge, he's framed some pretty unusual things from large Indonesian batiks to antique violins, you name it!
In his spare time, Matt keeps marine fish and sometimes finds time to relax too!
