“I can’t say enough good things about Pierre Paul Picture Framing. We brought three photographs to be framed there a couple of years ago, and they did a beautiful job with all three. We get compliments all the time on the pieces. We have since moved to New York City and recently needed to get a papyrus framed. There are any number of framing places here (in NYC) but we wanted this piece to look special, so we flew to Michigan to have Lee frame it. I’m so glad we did, because it looks more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. Pierre Paul gets my highest recommendation, for customer service and, more importantly, for creativity and skill.”

- Scott Stabile, NYC.


“From our first meeting, more then 15 years and 21 framing projects ago, Lee and his staff have been transforming art work into art treasures through their framing expertise. Their enthusiasm makes the process fun. Their knowledge of what will ‘look good’ and eye for detail comes through in every finished piece. Lee has the ability to know what you want even when you don’t. Seeing the pieces hung in your home will simply make you smile. If you have framing needs and desire that unique look to enjoy for many years to come, I recommend using the creative framing services of Pierre Paul Picture Framing.”

“I have completed a cross stitch piece and need to have it framed. I take it to the same person I have taken other items to since 1979. Whether it is Pierre Paul Art Gallery, Frameology or The Great Frame Up, you seek out the expertise of Lee Jean-Gilles and his excellent staff at Pierre Paul. Pierre Paul Picture Framing has made new and antique needlework, photographs, posters, paper cuts, watercolors and postcards into magnificent works of art. Pierre Paul Picture Framing selects the exact matting and framing material to bring focus to the item. Every room in my home displays items which were matted and framed with this expertise. Lee uses his vibrant personality to create works of art by intuitively knowing what his client desires. So select your item, entrust it to Pierre Paul and wait for it to become an item to enhance your environment and become a treasured gift.”

“Lee Jean-Gilles has taught us the power of the picture frame! We recently enlisted Lee’s help in framing and placing artwork in our newly constructed home. Within hours after an initial visit to our house where Lee absorbed the details of our décor with incredible precision and accuracy, we understand he was enthusiastically at work melding his collection of frames with our pictures and interior design. Within days he was presenting us with his sensational choices. Though we did not comprehend it at the time but were merely dazzled by the exquisite frames and matting, Lee had chosen some frames to simply blend into the background and let the pictures speak for themselves, while, with others, he chose frames which drew the artwork out with perfect color and style. All this became evident when Lee deftly placed them on the walls where we could not help but appreciate his unerring eye! Thank you, Lee, for helping us enjoy the beauty and character of artwork and frame through your extraordinary abilities. We feel blessed to know you as a friend, adviser, and artisan extraordinaire!”

“We have worked with a number of framing galleries in the past, but for the last 25 years have been contracting exclusively with Lee Jean-Gilles and his knowledgeable and professional staff at Pierre Paul. Over this period, they have accommodated a full range of design styles and art forms, from a grandchild’s elementary school art project to signed and remarked lithographs.

For each project, they had the ability to capture the relationship of frame to print, from appropriateness and historical integrity to proper color, proportion, and balance. They used only the highest quality materials and were always familiar with the latest displaying techniques. Their execution of the final product wass consistently done with creative skill and technical perfection.

Lee has been the driving force and talent behind the gallery’s visionary success. He is imaginative, gregarious, and extremely engaging. His sense of humor is coupled with his energy and passion for artful surroundings, and his broad range of cultural experiences and historical knowledge all assist in making him a master at choosing the right products and applications for showcasing art.

In a profession completely dependent on customer satisfaction, his expanding business and extensive list of clients speaks for itself. Without hesitation, we wholeheartedly recommend Lee and his staff at Pierre Paul Picture Framing.”
