Meet the new Owners

Elizabeth Woodbury also known as Libby on left states: "Elizabeth is an amateur photographer and art collector. She has an engineering degree and a day job at local international seafood processor and supplier– the frame/gallery business complements her analytical skills and satisfies her psyche. She will be the primary gallery contact and organizer; Lisa is her right hand in this business venture Monday thru Friday and primary framing contact. Saturdays are all Libby, all day. "

Lisa Bedell Cheever on the right states: "I grew up in York, Maine in a very close supportive family.  I always enjoyed art while going through school but never really knew what I wanted to pursue as a career.  Instead I always chose jobs or careers around my boys as they grew.  Being home and available for my family always came first.  It wasn’t until my youngest started preschool that I had a desire to pursue a college degree. 

I earned my Associates Degree in Photography in 2006 and managed to stay on the Dean's List through my entire experience in college.  If you knew me in High School, I was not a very good student so this was very exciting for me.  I then used my skills as a photographer taking Senior Portraits, Family Portraits, Wedding Pictures and some advertising assignments.  I now enjoy shooting landscapes, informal portraits and wildlife.

Recently I became a Maine State Recreational Guide.  Whenever possible I will find my way to the outdoors, snowshoeing, hiking, canoeing, skiing, snowmobiling and camping.  I try to do my best to always have a camera handy to share my experience. 

This new adventure of owning the Emporium Framing with my friends Elizabeth "Libby" Woodbury, Mike Conlon and my husband Andrew seems like a dream.  Libby and I attended the framing school ABC Framing in Islip NY and have the support and shared knowledge of the former owners of the Emporium Framing, Raymond Hamel and Sue Pretty.

Of course, none of this would be possible without the love and support of my three boys, my husband and my family and friends.  I can't wait to see where this adventure takes us!"
