Framing with Akasha Arts
Proprietors Kelly Kyle and Sonja Scharf have been practicing artists and photographers for over 25 years. Their overall vision from which they conduct their business is guided by their formal art education and a passion for a variety of art forms. Their combined backgrounds of producing, curating and handling art allow Kelly, Sonja and their team to understand the individual needs of each client. This culminates in a finished product that contributes to the aesthetic of each image and it’s environment.
