In the summer of 2008, Hear2heaL PhotoArt opened in a retail center, adding a custom frame shop and portrait studio to the gallery of photographs. At the end of their lease, Gregg and Sindi moved Hear2heaL PhotoArt to a larger, nicer shopping center where the shop is located today. With the additional space came the inspiration to increase the diversity of art and include the works from the artists and photographers who had used the frame shop services throughout the early years.
Hear2heaL PhotoArt has grown into a collaborative gallery, featuring works of art and photography from a multitude of gifted artists and photographers. Custom framed originals are displayed, as well as limited edition fine art giclées available in the print bins. Each piece is numbered, signed by the artist or photographer and includes a Certificate of Authenticity. Digital capture takes place in the studio, then edited by Sindi Short, the Hear2heaL Photo Editor. Archival pigment inks and Epson 100% Cotton Rag Fine Art paper is used in the printing of the giclées, giving them a longevity rating of 200+ years. The same archival inks are used in the printing of the fine art photography which is printed on Epson Premium Luster professional photography paper.
Hear2heaL PhotoArt has become a 'haven in the desert' for both artists and lovers of art. With hundreds of framing choices, a child's school artwork has become a masterpiece. The frames are designed and built by Gregg Short, the Hear2heaL Custom Framer, who loves the challenge of something unique and different to frame. The couple work together to bring value and quality to each framing project, loving the customer and the finished beauty of the art itself.
